WOOT! I have my ABN. Not bad, Australian Tax Office. Took less than 24 hours to process and all over a weekend. Plus I have digital access to all account information I need with the Online Tax Office division. I have to say, that’s extremely efficient. While this is how most applications ought to be processed (after all, it’s merely information, and should easily be processed almost instantly) it’s not the kind of experience that I’ve had lately with account information services. Compare this, for instance, with my Telstra Broadband account that took more than 10 days to set up.
But in any case, I’m now registered as a business again. YAY.
