What is Director ID Number?

A Director ID Number is a unique number given to an existing or intending director who has verified their identity with the Registrar.  It is available via the  Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS) website.

  • A director ID is issued to a person forever.
  • A person will keep their director ID even if they stop being a company director, change their name or move interstate or overseas.
  • Director ID is being introduced to provide traceability of a director’s relationships over time, and across companies, to assist regulators and external administrators to investigate a director’s involvement in what may be repeated unlawful activity, including illegal phoenix activity.
  • Both existing and new directors will need to apply.
