As an existing Director of a Company (or Companies) registered with Gaertner & Associates we are writing to remind you of your obligation to have your DirectorID before 1 December 2022.
Existing directors need to apply for a director identification number (Director ID) by 30 November 2022. Itfree, you only need to apply once, and youkeep your director ID forever. If you are receiving this email more than once than several Directors in your Company need to arrange/notify us of their Director ID.
Our records indicate you are a Director and we have not been provided with your Director ID. If you already have this please reply to this email with this information. If you still need to apply for your Director ID the attached instructions can assist.
All Directors of a company have until 30 November to apply, including:
?bsp; corporate trustee, for example, of a self-managed super fund

If you’re interested you can search ABN Lookup using your business, charity or not-for-profit ABN or business name to confirm – if ASIC Registration – ACN or ARBN or ARSN or ARFN is showing against the record, and youa director, you need to apply for a Director ID.
Sole traders or partnership donneed a director ID.
The fastest way to apply for a director ID is by using the myGovID app to log in to ABRS online. You will need a myGovID with at least a Standard identity strength to proceed.
Please note Accountants can not apply for your director ID on your behalf. This is because only directors can apply for their own Director ID. The reason you need to apply yourself is because you must verify your identity with the Registrar of Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS). Your tax agent can assist you with your records, for example by providing you with your notice of assessment details and bank account details used for ATO refunds.
Failure to have a Director ID in place by 1 December 2022 could result in a $13,200 fine.
