Director Id

The Director ID is a 15 digit identifier given to a director to verify their identity.

You will need a Director ID if you are an eligible officer (director) under the Corporations Act 2001. It is not just directors of trading companies that need a Director ID but also a director of a passive investment entity or a corporate trustee (e.g. SMSF) will also need to apply.

The deadlines for obtaining a Director ID are dependent on what date you became a director. If you became a director before 1 November 2021 then the deadline is 30 November 2022. If you became a director between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022 then the Director ID must be obtained within 28 days of appointment. If you become a director from 5 April 2022 then you must obtain a Director ID before you take up the new directorship.


Failure to comply may result in financial penalties.

From 1 November 2021, with your myGovID, you can log in to ABRS online as per the link below to apply for a Director ID. The same login can be used to ensure the Director ID is kept up to date. Further information from the Australian Business Registry Services can also be obtained from this weblink.
