What is the format of the Australian Business Number?
The following formula can be used to verify the ABN you are allocated or to verify the ABN issued to a business you deal with.
To verify an ABN:
- Subtract 1 from the first (left) digit to give a new eleven digit number
- Multiply each of the digits in this new number by its weighting factor
- Sum the resulting 11 products
- Divide the total by 89, noting the remainder
- If the remainder is zero the number is valid
