Australian Director ID application – Have you missed the original deadline?

The application period has been extended at the last minute to 14 December 2022 (News in the National Press)

You still have 2 options to avoid heavy penalties if you haven’t applied yet:

  1. Urgently fill in your application online and submit it by 14 Dec.
  2. If you cannot apply on time AND fit into the specific circumstances criteria, perhaps you can request an extension, by filling in the online form and sending it per email

It is a criminal offence if Australian directors do not apply on time for their Director ID, and penalties may apply.
