    The Australian Business Register Program provides a range of free services that can make it easier for your agency to interact with your clients – services that are straight-forward and convenient:

    • Australian Business Register (ABR) data – business identity data which your agency can use for compliance, infrastructure planning, grant allocation, disaster response and recovery efforts and more.
    • AUSkey – a digital key which will allow business to identify itself and securely access your agency’s online services.
    • Standard Business Reporting (SBR) – will allow you to have your agency forms included in business software packages which businesses could then use to prepare and lodge directly to your agency.
    • Australian Reporting Dictionary – a free, online resource that allows you to search for definitions and reports relevant to your agency.

    Our principles

    We work with agencies such as yours to give life to these core principles:

    • Business-focussed services – digital services that eliminate duplication across government, allowing you to remove red tape and deliver a consistent and trusted user experience for business.
    • Improved efficiency and productivity – leveraging up-to-date business information to help you develop evidence-based policy and law that increases business productivity.
    • Digital by default – creating a standardised digital infrastructure which helps you provide simple and convenient services that businesses want to use.
    • Common technology platforms – a standard suite of systems, processes and standards that can be applied to your agency’s needs.
