The ATO Commissioner of Taxation Chris Jordan has extended the Director ID Due Date to December 14.

“According to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), some 1.8 million directors have now applied.


However, with more than 2.5 million directors operating businesses across the country, that leaves around 700,000 directors who are yet to submit an application.”

A number of our clients still haven’t applied, so we strongly urge anyone who hasn’t to please do so by the due date.

Please note the maximum fine for not having a Director ID number is set at $13,200.

Once you’ve applied, please email the Director ID to Cait McCloud at our office –

If you have any queries, please contact our office.

Kind Regards,

Eric Cirulis
