ABN Lookup is the free public view of the Australian Business Register (ABR). It provides access to publicly available information supplied by businesses when they register for an Australian Business Number (ABN).

The ABN Lookup tools may assist with multiple searches.

Trading names will not be displayed from 1 November 2025

ABN Lookup will continue to display trading names until 31 October 2025.

A further extension to transitional arrangements will see the display of trading names continue to 31 October 2025. This gives affected businesses more time to inform their customers, suppliers and other stakeholders of any changes to the name that they use to conduct their business.

This extended transitional period will also provide additional time for businesses to take steps to register a business name External site with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
