• How to get a copy of your ABN certificate

    When setting up business bank accounts or changing superannuation details, you may be required to provide a copy of your Australian business number (ABN) certificate or an extract of your ABN details.

    To get a copy of your ABN certificate re-issued, you can contact the ABR. Requests for ABN certificates are processed within 14 days. ABN extracts are processed within 20 business days.

    To request an extract of your ABN details including additional information such as email address, associate details and ANZSIC description, you can do so in writing to:

    The Registrar
    Australian Business Register
    PO Box 9977
    Civic Square, ACT, 2608

    You will need to include the following:

    • the relevant ABN
    • your contact details
    • the address for delivery (which should be as listed on the ABR).

    If we are unable confirm your identity and your authority to request an abstract or certificate, or the information provided is incorrect, your request will not be processed. We will notify you by mail should this occur.
