Important Information for users of the ABN Lookup services
This website is presented as a convenient, free of charge way for you to
access a partial, online version of the Australian Business Register (ABR).
This service is maintained under the A New Tax System (Australian Business
Number) Act 1999, the main objective of which is to make it easier for
businesses to conduct their dealings with the Australian Government. Due to the
limitations outlined below, neither the Registrar of the ABR nor the Federal
Government accepts any liability arising from use of, or reliance upon, this
Limitations of information available through ABN Lookup
The Registrar of the ABR monitors the quality of the information available on
this website and updates the information regularly.
However, neither the Registrar of the ABR nor the Federal Government guarantee
that the information available through this service (including search results)
is accurate, up to date or complete. This is because the official ABR is based
on information supplied by businesses to the Registrar of the ABR. That
information may have changed since it was supplied by the business and was
included in the ABR, despite requirements on entities to formally notify the
Registrar of any changes.
In addition, while we make reasonable efforts to regularly update the
information available through this service from the official ABR, the
information available through this service may not be as current as the
information in the official ABR.
You should consider verifying any information obtained through this service
with other sources.
Furthermore, the fact that an entity is listed in the ABR is not a warranty of
the commercial viability or continuing existence of the entity, nor is it a
warranty that any apparent use by an entity of its Australian Business Number
is in fact properly authorised by the entity.
Relying on information in ABN lookup
The Commissioner of Taxation has advised that:
- If you primarily rely on information about another entity in ABN lookup to self-assess your taxation liabilities or entitlements, and that information
turns out to be incorrect:
- The Commissioner will not take compliance action to recover any tax shortfall
- You will also be protected against any false or misleading statement penalty and any interest charges.
However, you will not be protected against any liability to tax shortfall, penalties or interest charges if you and the entity on ABN Lookup are associates.
More information about associates can be found at
