ABN/TFN Applications

Thank you! Your submission has been received!
Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.

For which products are applications prepared?

Any company, trust or superfund ordered through Acis.

Will Acis charge a fee to prepare an application?


Can I request an application after the entity is established?

Yes. A request may be submitted via the Acis portal, by navigating to the COMPLETED section, then selecting the Integration icon for the relevant entity.

How long does it take Acis to prepare an application?

Assuming ABR's website is working and no validation issues arise, the saved application will be delivered within a few minutes.

How will I know when an application has been prepared?

You will be notified via email (and on the Acis portal) with instructions on how to review the saved application and submit it to ABR.

Does the prepared application have an expiry date?

Yes. Applications saved on ABR expire after 6 weeks.

I've forgotten my application reference number and/or password?

These are securely stored on our portal. Navigate to the COMPLETED section, then select the Integration icon  for the relevant entity.

Who is responsible for the application?

You are, and it is critical that all information included in your ABN/TFN application is verified as accurate before submission to ABR.

What if I only require a Tax File Number only?

ABR does not facilitate saving of applications requesting only a TFN. If you only require a TFN, please update the selections made in the Business Activity section of the saved application prior to submitting with the ABR.

Does my application include GST and PAYG registration?

No. You can register for GST and PAYG via ABR after your ABN is issued.

Can more than one authorised contact be added to my application?

Additional Authorised Contacts may be added into saved applications.

Should I provide TFNs for all associates?

Yes. Providing TFNs allows ABR to verify associates and avoid lengthy processing delays. As TFNs cannot be added to saved applications, they should be provided prior.

What if an Associate is yet to receive a TFN?

To avoid any processing delays by ABR, it is recommended the application be requested after the Associate has received their TFN.

Who should I nominate as Associates?

ABR's minimum requirements for Associates are:

  • company applications - a public officer, director and company shareholder;
  • trust applications - trustees;
  • superfund applications - trustees and members.

Other associates may be nominated via the Comments field in our application.

Where do I enter the business postal address?

Postal addresses (that differ from the main business address) may be added into saved applications.

What if there are validation issues with my application?

One of our team will contact you regarding validation issues.

How do I provide (EFT) account details in a superfund's application?

For superfunds, you can add EFT account details into saved applications.
