Director identification number (DIN) guidelines

The Treasury Laws Amendment (Registries Modernisation and Other Measures) Act 2020 amended the Corporations Act to introduce a director identification number (“DIN”) requirement.  All directors of Australian companies, including corporate trustee directors of SMSFs are subject to this new DIN requirement.

Objective of this measure

The objective of this new measure is to promote good corporate conduct and assist regulators to detect and address unlawful conduct by requiring each appointed director of a registered body corporate to have a unique DIN.

Date of effect

The effective date of the relevant part of the legislation is 4 April 2021.

Application

From November 2021, all directors (or an alternate director who is acting in that capacity) of a company must apply for a director ID.

The due date for applying for the director’s ID depends on when the person becomes a director and is summarised in the table below.

Standard SMSF Conversion 

Generally, most SMSF deeds are drafted with very wide amendment powers.  However there is the possibility that the existing amendment provision is too narrow to allow a complete replacement of the Governing rules. Further, there may be particular provisions in the current deed which are of a particular benefit to the fund and which will not be replaced in the SUPERCentral Governing Rules. By using the SUPERCentral Standard Service you understand, accept and agree that SUPERCentral Pty Ltd and/or TOWNSENDS BUSINESS & CORPORATE LAWYERS will not be undertaking a legal review of the current provisions to determine whether these issues are relevant to the particular fund and are not liable in any way to any person for any detrimental effect of any kind caused by, arising out of or in any way relating to the supply of the Standard Service or the supply, execution or effect of a conversion deed prepared or supplied by SUPERCentral Pty Ltd and/or TOWNSENDS BUSINESS & CORPORATE LAWYERS pursuant to the Standard Service and any trustee of a fund using the Standard Service hereby releases SUPERCentral Pty Ltd and/or TOWNSENDS BUSINESS & CORPORATE LAWYERS from all liability thereafter.
