Hi, its my first time applying for an ABN and I'm running into some problems.

 

We're a unincorporated NFP sports team applying for an ABN for the first time. In the application, I've listed 4 office bearers and 2 public officers and all their details. However, I'm getting an error saying that I don't have have the correct number of associates listed? The help button says I just need a minimum of 1 office bearer and 1 public officer, so not sure what the problem is.

 

Any help would be much appreciated Smiley Happy

HI @demonsdc

 

With your ABN application for an unincorporated association, associates can be listed for persons who hold positions such as: 

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary

A Public Officer must be appointed if the unincorporated association is carrying on a business. There can only be one Public Officer at a time.

 

Associates by entity type are listed on the ABR website.
