Having an ABN can make claiming subsidies through the Australian Government easier.
There are many reasons why you may need an ABN, however, we’ll leave that conversation for you to have with the ATO or your business accountant. However, one of the reasons is it makes it easier to track your business transactions for tax purposes. In turn, this can help make claiming some of the Australian Government’s subsidies and support options simpler.
Applying for an ABN in generally quite easy and shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes if you have everything prepared. What you need will depend on the business structure you choose, however, at a minimum, you will need your Tax File Number, your ACN (if you have one), entity legal name and the other things listed on the Australian Business Register website.
