All Directors need to have a Director Identification Number (DIN) by November 30.
What is a DIN?
The DIN is a 15-digit unique code that is held forever (even if the holder stops acting as a Director, moves overseas/interstate, or changes name).
This new requirement has been introduced by the ATO & ASIC to stop fraudulent activity and help keep records clear amongst Aus. Companies.
Who needs to apply?
If you are a Director, Alternate Director, or an emerging Director of:
- Australian Registered Companies (public or proprietary)
- Body corporate that is registered
- Registered foreign companies
- Aboriginal corporations
NOTE – if you are not yet a Director but intend to be one in the future, you may also apply for a Director ID at any time, you MUST have a DIN before you are appointed.
Who does NOT need to apply?
- Company Secretaries
- Defacto or Shadow Directors
- Sole Traders
