• ABR milestone reached

    The Australian Business Register (ABR) Program recently reached an important milestone – with one million cancellations of ABN registrations reached.

    As a result, the data integrity of the ABR has improved.

    In the process, a series of key activities were undertaken with businesses in a bid to reduce redundant ABNs. Those activities included distribution of thousands of letters, many desk reviews, forums and face-to-face meetings

    Removing redundant ABNs will ensure the ongoing quality and greater accuracy in the ABR data.

    As the accuracy of ABR increases so will the usability of the Register for everyone.

    Further work towards improving the quality of ABR data is still underway.
