"Has anyone asked the ATO why I can do an ABN application via the ABR service and in most cases be provided with the ABN immediately? Yet if I prepare an ABN application and lodge this application via the ATO Portal I have to wait 28 days.
Where is the logic?
You would think the opposite should occur as lodging it via the Portal should provide some integrity to the ABN application."
