Cancel your ABN
AUSkey will be retired in March 2020. Try myGovID and Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) – a simpler and more secure way to login. Find out if you're ready to start using myGovID and RAM.
You should cancel your ABN if your business:
- has been sold
- has closed down
- is no longer operating in Australia or making supplies connected with Australia.
Cancelling an ABN will cancel:
- registrations for goods and services tax (GST), luxury car tax (LCT), wine equalisation tax (WET) and fuel tax credits (FTC)
- AUSkeys linked to your ABN.
Before you cancel
Before you cancel your ABN, ensure you meet any lodgment, reporting and payment obligations with any government agencies you deal with.
Note: If you want to cancel your pay as you go withholding, you must cancel it before you cancel your ABN.
