How to cancel my ABN on a student visa?

You should cancel your ABN if your business is no longer operating or you have sold your business. Please make sure you have talked with your accountant or bookkeeper before canceling your ABN in case you need to pay off any obligations for your business.

You can cancel your ABN by going online to myGovID and filling out an online form or lodging a form by mail. You can also contact the Australian Business Register in case you need help.

Tips from the True Blue Studies team –

We suggest you talk with your friends who have already done it. When we came to Australia on student visas years ago, we applied for an ABN but needed help during our application, so we asked for advice from people who had experience with it for our ABN to be accepted.
