Applications where manual processing is necessary to make an ABN entitlement decision are expected to reduce by 30% and the percentage of registrations issued on the spot will increase from 61% to around 80%.
The Register will continue to be improved as ABN records are updated with more accurate and complete business address records.
We intend to address the data quality issues that have been highlighted in Survey 19 results to further enhance the accuracy of the data on the Register and its value to our stakeholders in the year ahead.
