Linking Nominees

Linking Nominees to Corporate or Sole Traders

Change to Contact Details

It is the customs broker licence holder’s responsibility to ensure that their contact information in the ICS is up to date. A standard template letter to request changes to contact details in the ICS is available below.

Change of Address

The ICS relies on the Australian Business Register (ABR) for business and postal address information for ABNs.  Holders of ABN’s must contact the ABR to update this information.
