Factsheet: How to apply for a Director Identification Number

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.

  • Appointed on or before 31 October 2021, must apply by 30 November 2022
  • Appointed between 1 November 2021 and 4 April 2022, must apply within 28 days of appointment
  • Appointed from 5 April 2022, must apply before appointment
