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 accept any liability arising from use of, or reliance upon, this service.

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.
