All directors appointed on or before 31 October 2021 must apply for a Director Identification Number (director ID) by 30 November 2022 or risk facing serious penalties. Intending new directors must apply for a director ID before being appointed.
Penalties may apply if directors do not apply on time ($13,200 criminal; $1,100,000 civil).
If you are a director appointed on or before 31 October 2021 and have not yet applied for a director ID, we recommend you apply for your ID as soon as possible. To assist with this, we provide further guidance in our practical guides below:
- Foreign directors – follow this practical guide
- Australian directors – follow the guides on how to apply for your director ID including how to set up myGovID on your smart device.
