New Web App

Run your own plumbing business and sick of the paper work?

Want to streamline things to make life easier?

Then a new Web App, developed by the Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ), may be what you are after.


The App allows plumbers to submit forms, including Notifiable Work (Form 4) applications direct from any mobile device, tablet or computer.

MPAQ Executive Director Penny Cornah said “MPAQ has adopted this innovative approach in the development of this new technology that will help revolutionise the plumbing industry in Queensland.”


The app has been developed in consultation with the Queensland Government.

It allows plumbers to fill out forms 1, 4, 7, 9, 70, Water Efficiency Certificates and TMV forms. Form 4A will be available soon. The App helps improve efficiency, saving time and money.


How does it work? Well the app records and stores users’ information, such as licence numbers and employer names, then automatically inputs this information into forms for lodgement.


The submission of forms is then completed with the touch of a button, with payment for form lodgement handled automatically through MPAQ.


For more information call MPAQ on 07 3273 0800.
