You’ve applied for a director ID and now need the number, so you’ve asked the question how do I find my director ID number? Directors of companies in Australia require a director ID in most instances. If you are a director of an Australian company and need to find your director ID, the process is relatively simple.

How to obtain your director ID?

Firstly, you will need a myGovID with at least a Standard identity strength. With this myGovID, you can then log into ABRS online and view your director ID, along with its status and when it was issued.

Additionally, you can use the ‘Organisations and Business Names’ search on ASIC Connect. This will allow you to search by the company’s name or the company’s Australian Company Number (ACN).

Don’t have a director ID?

If you do not already have a director ID, you will need to apply for one. You can follow the steps on this website to do so.

Compliance Framework for Directors

If you are a company director then you will appreciate the complexity of the Australian regulatory landscape. Regulatory obligations applying to company directors are constantly changing and non-compliance can result in significant penalties.

The compliance obligations of Australian company directors are extensive and must be taken seriously. All company directors in Australia are required to abide by directors duties as outlined in the Corporations Act 2001. These duties include the obligation to act in good faith, with proper purpose and in the best interest of the company. Directors must also exercise care and diligence when making decisions and must avoid conflicts of interest. They must not misuse their position or confidential information, and must ensure that the company meets its financial obligations, including paying taxes and superannuation.
