How do I verify an Australian Business Number (ABN)?

Answer

If an Australian company, vendor, or supplier is working with your company on a project, only users with 'Admin' level permission on the Company or Project level Directory tool can verify an Australian Business Number entry with the Australian Government's ABN Lookup database (https://abr.business.gov.au/) directly from Procore's Company or Project level Directory tools.

Add and Verify an ABN

  1. Navigate to the Company or Project level Directory tool. 
  2. Locate the company record you want to add an ABN to and click Edit
  3. In the Entity Type drop-down menu, select ABN.
  4. Enter an ABN in the blank field.
  5. Click Save at the bottom of the page.
    The page refreshes automatically. The ABN Status is listed as "Not Verified."

  6. Click Verify ABN.
    The system checks the status for the ABN and updates the ABN Status (including the Last verified timestamp) automatically.
