• Improving the accuracy of the ABR

    02 December 2013 - The Australian Business Register (ABR) is now collecting new information about all of the associates and business locations for entities with an Australian business number (ABN).

    Next time you apply for an ABN on behalf of a client you will notice new mandatory fields to complete in the business locations and associates sections.

    We encourage you to update your client’s ABN details.

    The new information will be available to eligible government agencies who access and use ABR data. It will not be made available to the public.


    You will only be able to see and update this information in the ABR as it will not be accessible on the ATO Tax Agent Portal.

    End of attention
