Supplying the ATO or ASIC with false or misleading information is an offence. It is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to your information, which you can do by contacting us on info@abnrego.com.au.
  4. We reserve the right to request that you verify your identity in accordance with these Terms by providing us with a form of identification at any time.
  5. In the event that you provide us with incorrect information, neither we (nor any of our authorized representatives) will be liable for any charges, damages or loss that arise in connection with that information.
  6. The aim of this Website is to provide you with clear and succinct information. We are not liable if you misinterpret such information. If you require clarification on any of our information, please contact us.

    1. Your registered tax agent, acting on your behalf in your ABN application; and
    2. Your ASIC registered agent, if relevant, acting on your behalf, in your Business Name application.
  8. If the ATO rejects your application, our registered tax agent will, acting on your behalf, contact the ATO in an attempt to resolve any issues that may have arisen with regard to your application. We will inform you of the reasons that your application failed, and will attempt to find appropriate solutions wherever possible. We will advise you immediately after we secure your ABN, and will resign as your tax agent.
  9. ABN registration services
    1. We will use electronic and telephone communication methods while communicating with the ATO on your behalf as part of our registered tax agent services.
    2. On occasion, it might not be possible for us to arrange for the ATO to process your ABN registration application immediately through our electronic system. In such cases, we will review your application and will manually apply for an ABN on your behalf. In a small number of cases, and pertaining to the specifics of an individual client’s application, the ATO specifies a waiting period of up to 28 days after the application is submitted before we can contact them to resolve any issues.
    3. If the ATO rejects your application, it may be due to one of the following reasons:

– The supplied information Is not an exact match for information held on ATO records:

– You currently have, have previously applied for, or have previously had an ABN; or

– There are problems with the ATO processing system, including, but not limited to, maintenance issues or system downtime.4.

In the event that the ATO rejects your application, we will get in touch with you to explain other options available to you in establishing your business. If you decide you do not wish to proceed, your ABN application will be canceled and you will be issued with a full refund.

If the ATO places your application under review, it will be subjected to the standard 28-day response period. The ATO may advise you directly by post, using the address supplied in your application. You will usually receive notification within 14 days of the date that your application was filed.

If you submit applications for an ABN and Business Name at the same time, and the ABN is refused, we will cancel your ABN and Business Name applications.

We will inform you as soon as we have secured your ABN.
