Director IDs (DIN) is now mandatory for every company director. A DIN must be registered by the end of November 2022.
A Director must apply for a DIN by November 30 2022 or face a penalty of up to $13,000.00. So getting a DIN is very important.
Applications can be done in two ways:
- Online using MYGOVID authenticator after setting up an account with Australia Business Registry Services at www.abrs.gov.au.
- Call Australia Business Registry Services directly 136250 and complete the identification process over the phone.
Applying for a DIN is something the individual is required to do directly.
We have found that, for those who are “technologically” challenged, the phone method worked very well. Make sure you have all relevant identity documents with you.
