Happy New Year. January can be a quiet month while everyone is on holidays, so this is a good time to remind you to check that you are complying with the current rules about director identification numbers.
Directors of all companies, including charities that are companies or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporations must apply for a director ID.
New directors are required to apply for a director ID within 28 days after they are appointed.
Directors who were appointed before 31 October 2021 were required to apply by 30 November 2022, so if you do not currently have a director ID, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible.
Visit the Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS) for more information about who needs a director ID, and how to apply.
