You can, however because an international/foreign company is unlikely to have an ACN or TFN, the application will automatically be flagged for manual review by the ATO.
The ATO’s non-resident team has recently changed the requirement that an international company post a certified certificate of registration to their Hobart office. Now, if you believe that your ABN application was flagged for manual review on basis that an international company is a shareholder, please contact the customer service team at EasyCompanies on 1300 664 337.
Once our team is aware of the international company associate we can contact the ATO to have your application verified and expedited by the ATO’s non-resident department.
