The Director registration process has been in place for a month now. I have had a very mixed response amongst clients and associates that have gone through the process.

My experience was straightforward as I had a MyGovId. It took about 5 minutes to do as I had the required documents required to apply.

The methods and list of the documents required to apply are on the link below.

You, too, can apply for the MyGovId. Go to https://www.abrs.gov.au/director-identification-number/apply-director-identification-number to assist you with the application process. You will need to download the app onto your smart device and an email address.

It should be easy! A word of warning, the name you use should be precisely the same as the name you use with Government agencies, e.g. Name John versus Johnathon or middle name or no middle name etc.

You can also apply by paper application. The form can be downloaded from the following website,

Below is a link for this form for your convenience. All documentation sent with the applications needs to be certified.

Unfortunately, we as a firm cannot do this for you. We can assist where we can, such as providing you with a copy of your notice of assessment if you are a client. Wherever we can assist, we will be happy to do so.
