Changes to ABN application process
The ATO has made changes to the Australian Business Number (ABN) application process to help safeguard its integrity.
The recent changes focus on:
- identifying people going through the application process multiple times
- confirming entitlement and helping people understand their obligations where there may be some doubt
- ensuring only those who are entitled to an ABN actually receive one.
The changes will help business owners understand what it means to have an ABN and run their own business, as opposed to being an employee.
