What is ATOL Online?

ATOL Online enables all applications and maintenance of records (including APC returns) and Annual Accountants’ Reports to be accessed and submitted online via the CAA Portal, with real-time updates on the status of applications.

The licensing criteria remains unchanged.

ATOL Online will also be used by ATOL Reporting Accountants to provide the Annual Accountant’s Reports required to support renewal applications.

How do I access the online forms

Simply log in to the ATOL Portal, using your account user name password.

Select ‘Your Services’ from the menu on the left-hand side, then ‘Manage existing ATOL (Renew, vary, APC & Admin)’. Click on your licence number on the ATOL Portal Home Page. You will enter your ATOL Admin page, which will display the application and report options that are available.

If you have forgotten your user name please email atolonline@caa.co.uk. A guide on how to reset a password is below.
