Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Director Identification Number (DIN)?
A DIN is a unique 15-digit identifier that a director will apply for once and will keep forever. A director can only have one DIN that they must use for all companies.
The purpose of introducing DINs is to prevent the use of fictitious director identities, and to assist regulators to trace directors’ relationships with companies and better identify directors involved in unlawful activity.
When do I need to apply for a DIN?
When you must apply for a DIN depends on the date you became a director.
