How long does it take to get an ABN?

If it is your first time starting a business, you should receive your ABN within 15 minutes. If you already have an ABN or your details don’t match what the ATO has on record, they will place you on a 28 day hold. If that’s the case, we usually find that you will receive your ABN within two weeks.

If you're having any problems, please let us know as soon as possible at
