Director Identification Number
Introducing the new requirement of Director ID for all directors of Australian companies.
Director Identification Numbers were introduced from 1 November 2021 and will be required by all company directors.
Director ID is a unique 15 digit identification number.
Directors will need to apply for this personally as personal information will be required when applying. Engaging a 3rd party to apply on your behalf isn’t possible.
If you were a Director:
Before 1 November 2021, you have until 30 November 2022 to apply. You have plenty of time to apply. However, I would recommend applying sooner rather than later. Please don’t leave it to the last minute. The process is simple and takes less than 2 minutes to apply.
If you become a Director:
Between 1 November 2021 to 4 April 2022 within 28 days of appointment
From 5 April 2022, you must apply 28 days before the appointment
