All company directors are now required to apply for a director identification number (director ID).
A director ID is a unique identifier that you keep forever. It’s free to apply and you only need to apply once.
Directors appointed for the first time on or after 5 April 2022, must apply for their director ID prior to their appointment. Directors appointed prior to 1 November 2021 must apply for their director ID by 30 November 2022.
What you need to do
The fastest way to get a director ID is to apply online using the myGovID app.
If you can’t get a myGovID, the best way to apply for a director ID will depend on your situation.

You must apply for a director ID yourself. No one can apply for you as you will need to prove your identity when you apply.
