Are You A Director of A Company? You Now Need a Director's ID!

Updated: Dec 22, 2021

Preparing for your director ID

The director identification number (director ID) is a unique identifier that a director will apply for once and will keep forever. If you’re a director of a corporate trustee of a self-managed super fund (SMSF) you will need to apply for a director ID.

You will be able to apply for a director ID from November 2021 on the new Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS) online and will log in using the myGovID app.

When you must apply for a director ID, depends on the date you became a director. You will need to apply for your director ID yourself to verify your identity. No one can apply for it on your behalf.

The introduction of director ID will create a fairer business environment by helping prevent the use of false and fraudulent director identities. This will go a long way to better identifying and eliminating director involvement in unlawful activity.
