New requirement Directors ID

A new requirement for directors of Australian companies has now been introduced from 1 November 2021.

You need to personally apply for a director identification number (director ID) if you're a director of a company; unfortunately, your accountant cannot apply on your behalf.

If you were a director:

  • Before 1 November 2021, you have until 30 November to 2022 to apply

If you become a director:

  • Between 1 November 2021 to 4 April 2022 within 28 days of appointment

  • From 5 April 2022 before the appointment

A director identification number (director ID) is a unique identifier you will keep forever. It will help to prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities.
