    Australian Business Number

    Self Employed people, working as contractors, may also need an Australian Business Number (ABN).

    I have always had a tax file number and only recently was told I need an ABN as i have a job working for myself [self employed . I made a mistake and found a company to issue me one and I had to pay but later found out they are free and one can do it all on line. The company returned my money when I phoned them telling them how dumb I was about it all and I now have my ABN that I did myself on the computer with a government site.

    No ,an Australian Business Number ( ABN ) is nothing to do with your tax file number & you only need one if you are self employed or working on a contract basis.

    You can check whether you have an ABN here (although if you have to ask you probably don't have one)
