Director ID is your unique identifier to link you to all the directorships you hold in Australia. It is a new initiative of the government to eliminate fraudulent directorships, and hopefully will reduce red tape in updating your details across all companies.
Your current directorships don’t need to be updated for 12 months – due date for adding the Director ID is 30 November 2022.
If you are taking on new directorships, you will be required to provide your Director ID within 28 days after taking on this office.
Applications can be made:
- online – you need to have your myGovID set up
- over the phone – 13 62 50 or +61 2 6216 3440
- paper lodgements – from our experience, it takes 14 days to get it
During the application, you will be asked to verify your identity. Paper lodgements require certified copies of the documents.
