Director Identification Number (director ID) registrations are now available on the new Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS) website.
The ABRS is a new service who will be maintaining the Director Identification Number (director ID) registrations.
The director ID is a 15-digit unique identifier a director applies for once only and keeps forever, like a Tax File Number. It confirms a director’s identity and (once the functionality is available) will show which companies they’re linked to. The director ID will help prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities.

Changes to selecting a superannuation fund for new employees apply from 1 November 2021.
When a new employee commences employment with your business on or after 1 November 2021 and does not select a superannuation fund, the employer may need to request their "stapled fund" details from the ATO.
To make the request through ATO online services, your authorised representative will need 'Employee Commencement Form' permissions.
More information can be found on the ATO website here.
Please contact your local Boyce office if you require further assistance.
