Companies Take Note – Your Directors Must Apply For Their Directors ID Soon!
All directors in Australia are required to obtain a Director ID. Once a director receives their director ID they will keep it forever. When you must apply for your director ID depends on the date you first become a director. Below are some key dates for when a director must apply for their director ID:
|Date you first become a director
|Date you must apply
|On or before 31 October 2021
|By 30 November 2022
|Between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022
|Within 28 days of appointment
|From 5 April 2022
If you were already a director on or before 31 October 2021, you have until 30 November 2022 to apply for your director ID. This applies even if you became a director of another company after 31 October 2021.
