  • ABN registration – selecting your entity and organisation type

    This page is for non-profit organisations applying for an Australian Business Number (ABN).

    There are two key questions in the ABN application:

    • What type of entity are you?
    • What type of organisation are you?

    In answering those questions, your responses should be:

    • For taxation purposes which type of entity is the applicant? Non-profit organisations should select the option ‘Company, Partnership, Trust or other organisation’.
    • What type of organisation is the applicant? You should select the option that is most suited to your organisation’s legal structure - likely to be a company, trust or corporate trustee.
