AUSTRALIAN BUSINESS REGISTRATION PARTNERS – WHAT IS AN ABN PARTNER?
An Australian Business Register
(ABR) partner is a government agency that has entered into an agreement
with the Registrar of the Australian Business Register to either:
access Australian business number (ABN) details from the ABR (in accordance with the law)
adopt AUSkey as the online security key that businesses can use to transact with them online
make an online registration transaction available to businesses via the ABR.
Access to ABR data
ABN legislation allows the Registrar to disclose ABR information to
eligible Australian, state, territory and local government agencies that
have a legal right to the information as specified by the A New Tax System (Australian Business Number) Act 1999.
The goal is to:
make it easier for businesses to conduct their dealings with government
reduce the number of government registration and reporting requirements for business.
ABR partners can use ABR information to:
simplify their interactions with their clients
identify and verify businesses that have an ABN
check important information such as the GST status of a business
identify businesses for registration, research and analysis purposes (using industry coding)
confirm if the name, address and associate details of business clients are correct.
There are two types of information access available to ABR partners:
lodging reports directly to government through business, financial or payroll software. For more information, refer to www.sbr.gov.au .
In the future, businesses may no longer need different user IDs and
passwords as AUSkey becomes accepted by more government agencies for
their online services.
For more information about Government agencies and initiatives which
use AUSkey to provide businesses with access to online services, go to www.abr.gov.au/auskey and select Where AUSkey is accepted from the left hand menu.
