Missed the director ID deadline?

Last updated 1 December 2022

We're taking a reasonable compliance approach for those directors who are trying to do the right thing. After 14 December 2022, penalties may apply for directors who are deliberately not meeting their obligations.

The fastest way to apply is onlineExternal Link.

It’s free to apply and directors must do the application themselves to verify their identity.

To apply online, directors must have at least a Standard identity strength myGovID. If they have a Strong myGovIDExternal Link it will streamline the application process as they only need to provide their TFN or residential address, as held by the ATO, at the 'proof of record ownership' step.

Resources are available in languages other than EnglishExternal Link and our demonstration videoExternal Link has a step-by-step guide to applying online.
