Information for our influential community membersI am getting in touch on behalf of Australian Business Registry Services, managed by the Australian Taxation Office, regarding director identification number (director ID).

A director ID is a unique 15-digit identifier that all directors or people intending to become directors need.

Applying for a director ID is free and only needs to be done once. A director must apply for their own director ID and verify their identity using their personal records. Authorised tax, BAS or the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), or internal secretaries or business managers cannot apply on a director’s behalf.

Directors of an Australian company are required to apply for a director ID by 30 November 2022. This includes people who may be:

  • company directors
  • a corporate trustee for example of a self-managed super fund (SMSF)
  • a charity or not for profit organisation that is a company or a registered Australian body such as an incorporated association that is registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

For a full list of who does and does not need a director ID, visit

Attached are resources that can be shared with your community to help people who identify as directors understand the requirements. You can use these resources on your website, social channels, newsletters or by building them into existing activities and conversations with your community

We appreciate any assistance you can provide to share these resources. Translated resources will soon be available.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to working with you.
