Cancel ABNs & Tax Registrations That You No Longer Require


At times businesses have a change in circumstance which may affect the need for certain tax registrations. It’s a good idea to cancel these registrations to save time, effort and money on lodging paperwork that is not required or has a nil balance.

If you are selling or closing your business, your turnover drops below the threshold or your company structure changes, this may indicate you no longer need to be registered.

Before canceling any registrations, ensure that all your lodgements are up to date and paid. 

You can cancel ABNs, and any other registrations via the Business Portal or by completing a cancellation form and sending it to the ATO (NAT 2955).
