Changing your ABN suggests that the Entity through which you trade has actually changed. This impacts on any existing contracts that might be in place, as well as the information the Grain Buyers and Traders have recorded against your record in their system.
If your ABN or GST Status has changed, you are required to set up a new Business Entity (Payee) with a new NGR Card number. Please call NGR if you have a new ABN.
