Data Use Cases

Addressing and the Australian Business Register

The Australian Business Register (ABR) is a whole-of-government program that works collaboratively across government and industry to store details about businesses and organisations when they register for an Australian business number. The ABR is recognised nationally as a valuable asset and is used by the community and government daily to identify and verify business information and plan for infrastructure and service delivery.

Problem: Addresses need to be validated for internal service portals and when new registrations are created online.

Solution: Integrate the openly available G-NAF into the online process to use single-line address validation to verify addresses entered in real time. A 3rd party provided address validation service is used.
