Director's need to take action and register for a Director Identification Number (DIN) in order to meet their legal obligations. Fines of up to $1.1 million and imprisonment apply to those that have not met the obligations.

PDH Accounting Services act as ASIC agent for one or more companies of which you are a Director, and we must hold your DIN on file.

Anyone holding a Director position or those planning on becoming a Director must apply for a DIN. No one can apply on their behalf – however, if you need help, PDH is here to guide you through this process.

To apply for a Director ID online:

1.     Go to the ABRS website to access the ABRS Director ID service and learn about the Director ID requirements

2.     Verify your identity using your myGovID credentials or create a myGovID using your smartphone and Australian identity documents (driver’s licence or learner’s permit, passport, birth certificate, visa, citizenship certificate, ImmiCard, Medicare Card are all valid forms of ID). For more information visit How to set up myGovID.

3.     Conduct a proof of record ownership by answering two questions about the individual's ATO record. ATO records that can be used for verification include notice of assessment, PAYG payment summary, Dividend statements, Centrelink payment summary, Bank account details, superannuation account details (not including SMSFs).

4.     Complete a Director ID application on the ABRS platform to receive the Director ID instantly.

Penalties will apply if you do not apply for your director ID.

Please forward a copy of your number to us once it is received so that we can

keep it on file.
