  • Update your ABN details

    Updating your Australian business number (ABN) details might be the last thing on your mind, but it is important to consider when planning for your business to manage the coming disaster season.

    Your ABN details are used by emergency services and government agencies to help identify and contact businesses like yours during times of emergency and potential disaster.

    To make sure you don’t miss out on receiving important information, update your ABN details such as:

    • authorised contacts
    • physical location
    • postal address
    • email
    • phone number.

    If you're no longer in business, cancel your ABN so you aren't contacted unnecessarily. This can be done online and takes effect immediately.

    For examples of how ABN details are used during a disaster or emergency, visit the Australian Business Register (ABR) website.
