What is HESTA Income Stream's SPIN number? HST0001AU.

SPIN number is short for Superannuation Product Identification number. A SPIN number identifies a super fund product, as opposed to the business entity, fund or trustee. It is used by government organsations and financial institutions to identify the super fund products that belong to a superfund. A superfund may have many products, each identified by a spin number, which are often referred to as 'superannuation plans'. The SPIN number was introduced as part of the SuperStream system, but it has now largely been replaced by the USI number.

You can use thier portal as an official record of superannuation funds and their SPIN codes. It is a free service (just like SuperNumber) and available to the public via their website.

It was the Super EC Council that first announced the initative to introduce SPIN numbers. They delivered a set of guidelines for the standardaisation of the identification number system used for Superannuation funds & services in Australia. APIR system were awarded the contract to produce a portal that made the new identification system available to end users (the Australian public). The initiative was supported (and quickly adopted) by the superannuation industry.

This information is provided for historical context, as SPIN number have become largely redundant. Due to the newly introduced USI Number, you should look into whether you actually need a SPIN number or a USI number.

Through the ABR portal you can lookup your ABN & the details associated with other ABN's (one you've found on an invoice, for example).

Getting an ABN is free and easy, you can even do it online. Simply visit the ABR website, check that you're eligible, fill in a few details about your business and your ABN will be delivered by mail within a few days.

Not every business is eligible for an ABN (but 99% are). You need to be running (or about to start) a business within Australia (obviously). Employees are not applicable for an ABN, you would need to be a self contractor of some nature (the business would generally request an ABN from you, if it's applicable). You business activity needs to serious, not a hobby. If you're just kicking around a side project and don't intend to write invoices or make any money, don't bother with an ABN. Finally, taxation (GST). This only becomes necessary when you're turning over $75,000 or more within the business. This gives many businesses some leeway when it comes to GST, until their business starts to grow.
