Director Identification Numbers, application deadlines

We have reported previously on the introduction of the Director Identification Number (DIN) regime and on DIN application deadlines.

An important application deadline is 5 April 2022. If you are a new director appointed between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022, a reminder that you must apply for a DIN within 28 days of appointment. From 5 April 2022, however, you must apply before appointment.

If you are a director appointed on or before 31 October 2021, a reminder to lodge your application by 30 November 2022.

The application process is straightforward. Please read our earlier news item which sets out the steps in the process. Applications are made through the Australian Business Registry Services website (ABRS).

As well as our earlier news item, the following ABRS page provides further information on the application process, who needs to apply and when and other helpful details:
