An ABN (Australian Business Number) is an 11 digit identifier that makes it easier for businesses and all levels of government to interact. You do not have to have an ABN, but having one will avoid having amounts withheld from payments to you; and make it easier to register for GST and other business tax registrations such as PAYG withholding. You can apply for an ABN (Australian Business Number) or access and update your ABN details online.
