ABR Help Topics
There are certain circumstances in which the Registrar may change or replace an Australian business number (ABN):
There is no right of review of a Registrar’s decision to change the ABN. However, if an entity shows that it is being unduly inconvenienced, the Registrar may use his discretion in reinstating the previous ABN, rather than replacing it, if possible.
Registrar may change your ABN section 17 A New Tax System (Australian Business Number) Act 1999.
