From the 1st of November, Australian Company Directors are required by law to verify their identity with the Australian Business Registry Service and obtain a Director ID.
A director identification number (director ID) is a unique identifier you will keep forever. It will help to prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities.
When you must apply for your director ID depends on the date you become a director.
|Date you become a director||Date you must apply|
|On or before 31 October 2021||By 30 November 2022|
|Between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022||Within 28 days of appointment|
|From 5 April 2022||Before appointment|
We will be contacting you in the near future with instructions on how to obtain your director ID. If you have any queries in relation to this please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
Once you have obtained your Director ID please provide it to our office so we update our Corporate Compliance records.
