Director Identification Number
A Director Identification Number (Director ID) is a unique identifier that a director applies for once, which then remains with them forever.
It is a 15 digit identifier to ensure the verification of a director’s identity with the Australian Government.
If you are a director of any company, you will need to apply for a Director ID.
This includes trading companies, beneficiary companies and corporate trustee companies of both trusts and superfunds.
As of November 2021, you can apply for a Director ID on the new Australian Business Registry Services, in which you will login through myGovID.
Please follow this link to apply.
You will need to Setup a MyGovID if you don’t already have one.
Note: MyGovID is different to MyGov
You will also need to have some ATO information such as a Notice of Assessment, and bank account details which have previously been used to receive a tax refund.
All existing directors must apply by 30 November 2022, however we strongly recommend you do this one time set up now to avoid any future penalties.
