Can I request a review of a business name decision made by ASIC?

If ASIC has rejected your business name because they deem it too similar to another existing company or business name, you do have the right to request a review of this decision.

If you have registered the business name through us, please contact customer support and we can apply for this review on your behalf.

Otherwise, if you prefer to do this yourself, you may by following the instructions included in this link: http://asic.gov.au/for-business/registering-a-business-name/before-you-register-a-business-name/business-name-availability/request-review-of-asic-business-names-decision/
