Hi guys. I have to change my entity structure from sole trader to a company since I am adding on 2 new directors.

We are launching our marketing campaign within 2 weeks for perfect timing.

It says on the site that I have to get a NEW ABN all together.. if I want to make the switch to a company. Does anyone know the length of this process and if I can get it done before 2 weeks?


The company can generally be incorporated within 24 hours. The ABN & TFN application can be lodged online once incorporated. The quoted service time for ABN’s is up to 28 days but it can be anywhere from immediate to 2 weeks in practice.
