Reminder the deadline to register for Director ID
A reminder, 30 November is the deadline to register for Director ID.
Many small business owners don’t realise if they run a company or a registered body, or are a director of one, then they are required to have a director identification number (Director ID). If you are a Director on a Board you will require to register for an ID number.
A Director ID is not something your accountant to bookkeeper can get for you as it is about confirming your individual identity and connecting you to the businesses for which you have important responsibilities. It is free to apply and you keep your 15-digit Director ID number forever.
You do not need a Director ID if you are running a business as a sole trader or partnership. But this can be confusing, so it is worth checking with a trusted adviser or the Federal Government’s Australian Business Registry Services.
