Video: Applying for a Director ID



Director ID Regime

Australia’s Director Identification Number (DIN) regime came into effect on 1 November 2021 and will require you to register for an identification number.


A director ID is a 15 digit identifier that, once issued, will remain with you for life regardless of whether you stop being a director, change companies, change your name or move overseas.


The DIN is managed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) but created through the

Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS).
