A director identification number (director ID) is a unique identifier that company directors (including some charity directors) require.

Director IDs are designed to be retained forever and aim to:

  • prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities
  • make it easier for external administrators and regulators to trace directors’ relationships with companies over time

Visit the Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS) for information about who needs a director ID, and how to apply.
