Applying for a director ID is free, quick and easy
If you’re a corporate trustee of a self-managed super fund (SMSF), you can now apply for your director ID.
You can apply via Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS) online. You will need a myGovID with a Standard or Strong identity strength to apply for your director ID online.

When you need to apply for a director ID depends on when you first became a director. If you:
- were appointed on or before 31 October 2021, you have until 30 November 2022 to apply
- are appointed between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022, you need to apply within 28 days of your appointment
- will be appointed on or after 5 April 2022, you need to apply before you’re appointed.
The ABRS is available now so the ATO encourages you to apply for your director ID today.
Remember, because you need to verify your identity, no one can apply on your behalf.
