All company directors now need to verify their identity with a unique identification number, in order to help prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities.

Company directors must apply for their own director ID, only once, which will be their unique identifier forever.

  • Existing directors have until 30 November 2022 to apply.
  • Directors appointed before 4 April 2022 must apply within 28 days of their appointment.
  • From 5 April 2022, intending directors must apply before being appointed.

The fastest way to apply is online using myGovID. Visit the Australian Business Registry Services and follow the 3-steps to apply for your director ID.

Once you have your director ID, you need to provide it to the record-holder in your company, such as your company secretary, or an authorised agent of the company.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact us on (02) 9908 9888 or by email.
