  • Update your ABN details

    17 August 2020

    It's easy to forget to update your Australian business number (ABN) details during the day-to-day demands of running a business. But you must keep your contact details up to date because:

    • Emergency services and government agencies use ABN details to help identify and contact businesses during emergencies or times of crisis (For example bushfires and COVID-19). If your details are out-of-date you risk missing important assistance, updates or access to grants.
    • Keeping your information up to date is also important as other businesses and government agencies use the ABN to identify whether a business is genuine.

    We recommend ensuring your contact details are up to date, including:

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

    You can update your ABN details online through ABR online services using myGovID and RAM.

    If you're no longer in business, cancel your ABN. You can do this online and it's effective immediately.
