Dear member,

You may remember receiving an email similar to this from Tax and Super Australia in November 2021. However with the deadline for director ID registrations expiring next month, and with a reported 1.6 million directors (just over 2/3rds) yet to register, we felt that it was essential to send you this information again.

As you are aware, company directors are now required to verify their identity by applying for a director identification number.

This includes directors of an SMSF corporate trustee, family trust and directors acting in the capacity of an alternate director, even if they are appointed for a specified period or a temporary basis.

To assist our valued members, we have produced and updated this letter template for you to distribute to your applicable clients.

Download your template letter regarding the new DIN requirements.

The letter explains what a director ID is and how to apply for one, including step-by-step instructions on setting up a myGovID and the documentation required.

Additionally, the upcoming edition of our Outlook magazine will contain more details around director IDs.

If you have any questions about the new requirements, please contact Tax and Super Australia via

Kind regards,
Tax Technical team
