Director Identification Number

Director identification number

You need a director identification number (director ID) if you’re a director of a company, registered Australian body, registered foreign company or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander corporation.

A director ID is a unique identifier given to a director who has verified their identity with us. This will help to prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities.

All directors need to apply for their own director ID and will keep it forever. When you need to apply depends on when you become a director.

The fastest way to get a director ID is to apply online using the myGovID app. It’s free and you only need to apply once.

Before you start your application, it’s good lead to gather the information you’ll need to verify your identity.
