Welcome to PIO Dazrfc,

 

I applied online for an ABN this week and you actually get given one at the end of the process so there is no issue about 'speeding things up' - There are a number of questions it asks including asking for you tax file number (although you can make your application without one.

 

All the best

Hi

As far as I understand it, you can't get an ABN until you're actually here as you need to quote your tax file number (TFN) or provide documents that prove your identity for registration purposes. (Primary and secondary documents which you won't have until you're actually living in Australia).

Hey Dazrfc

 

I am guessing you are from the Glasgow area with the Rfc in your username! - I am from paisley and support Saint Mirren so there is no way I'm helping you LOL

 

Seriously though - the tax file number is a quick process (a week) and once you have that you can get the ABN straight away. The other things like the blue/white card I believe take a bit longer but someone else might be able to confirm that.

 

Ask away on the threads - that's what they are here for!

 

Daniel
