All directors accepting a directorship between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022 have 28 days following the date of appointment to apply for their director identification number (DIN). Any director accepting a directorship from 5 April 2022 onwards will need to have applied for their DIN prior to being appointed.
Directors who were appointed prior to 1 November 2021 have until 30 November 2022, unless they accept another directorship in the period set out above.
The DIN is a single registration number that you will keep forever. You do not need to apply for a new DIN foreach company you may be a director of and it won’t expire even if you stop being a director.
How to apply
You will need to have your Tax File Number and identity documents ready when you make your application.
Failing to apply for your DIN is a breach of a penalty provision under the Corporations Act and can result in a fine by ASIC. Need help with your director appointment - we’ve got you covered. Call us on (028880 9383) or email us at metis_at_metislaw.com.au
