ABN Record Update

ABN Record Update

Personally, I didn’t realise I had to update the ABN details for my business. I just thought that every time I updated my address with ASIC or the ATO it would filter through to the ABN record.

Well, it doesn’t! The systems aren’t connected … yet.

So, I checked my ABN details recently to find that the contact was the accountant who registered the ABN 18 years ago and who is now uncontactable!

Why update now?

The government are setting up a new integrated system for ABNs and the details from the old system will be transferred.

We have been advised it’s much easier to update the ABN record at the Australian Business Register (ABR) now, than have incorrect information transferred to the new system.

How do I update?

You’ll need a MyGovID to login so if you don’t already have a MyGovID set one up

The ABN records are updated through the ABR website

  • Look for the ‘Update your ABN details’ button
  • Log in with your MyGovID
  • Click on the ‘Update ABN Record’ button and work through each page.

Warning: this site is old, and patience is required!

There may be some records you can’t change, if that happens call for help 13 92 26.

Good Luck!
