Paper copies of ABN details

ABN confirmation advice

Your Australian business number (ABN) confirmation advice is available immediately on screen if your online ABN application is successful. It includes public details such as your ABN, name, business name and start date of your ABN. It also includes non-public details, such as:

  • postal address
  • business address
  • email address
  • Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) industry code
  • associate name/s and position – if applicable.

At any time after you register for an ABN you can contact us to request a paper ABN advice. Before you request an ABN confirmation advice, ensure that your contact details on the ABR are up to date. If the ABN is active, the advice will display updated details and will be sent to the postal address listed on the ABR within 14 business days.
