A reminder to all Members who identify as Company directors. You are required by law to apply for a director identification number (director ID).
A director ID is a unique identifier given to a director who has verified their identity with the Australian Business Registry Services. This will help to prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities.
If you want to become a director or are already one, you need a director ID. When you need to apply depends on the date you become a director.
|Date you become a director||Date you must apply|
|On or before 31 October 2021||By 30 November 2022|
|Between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022||Within 28 days of appointment|
|From 5 April 2022||Before appointment|
