The Registrar of the ABR is responsible for the administration of the Register. This includes a program of work to ensure the integrity of business information.
The ABR stores details about businesses and organisations when they register for an ABN.
To keep the Register current and accurate, the ABR reviews ABNs to ensure that they are held by businesses or organisations that are entitled.
It is important that the Australian Business Register contains accurate information on businesses and that only those entitled to an ABN are issued one.
The ABR has established a comprehensive ABR integrity program to help keep the ABR current and accurate.
Each year, as part of our ABR integrity program we review a targeted sample of ABN holders to ensure they are entitled to have an ABN.
