ABN branch

An ABN Branch (also known as a GST Branch) is used if part of your business needs to account for GST separately from its parent entity.

Even if your business doesn't account for GST this way, if your business has an ABN you'll also have an ABN branch number. If you don't have multiple branches, your ABN branch number will typically be 1 or 2 – but check with the ATO if you're unsure.
