Do you plan to work for yourself in Australia?
An Australian Business Number(ABN) is what you will need

An Australian Business Number (ABN) is a unique 11 digit number that allows you to carry on your own business in Australia.


An ABN allows you to:

  • Confirm your business details to other businesses or individuals when ordering and invoicing
  • Deal with Government agencies and the Australian Taxation Office
  • Claim GST credits
  • Register an Australian domain

ABN Application:

An ABN does not replace a TFN and will not cover all your dealings with the ATO - you will still need to quote your TFN when lodging your income tax returns.
The combined fee for a paper file TFN and ABN is $440. We can organise both for you.
