Important Changes to Director ID’S

The transitional period where new directors were given 28 days from the date of their appointment to obtain their director ID has ended.

Starting 5th of April 2022, it is mandatory to complete the director identification process before being appointed as a company director.

Director IDs can be applied online through MyGovID app or by contacting Australian Business Registry Services: 

If you are calling from within Australia: 13 62 50

If you are calling from overseas: +61 2 6216 3440

Inability to acquire a director ID preceding being designated as a director, or inside the required time period for existing directors, is a severe obligation offense. Fines as high as $13,200 might be forced for the criminal offense, and up to $1,100,000 if the court deems it appropriate to apply a civil penalty.

Instructions on how to complete your director ID can be found here: Director ID Instructions
