Company Registration

Everything you need to know about starting and running, including how to nominate directors and shareholders.

Can I reserve a company name and register it at a later stage?

Yes. You can reserve a company name by lodging a Form 410A – Application for Reservation of a Name – directly with ASIC. You can download it here.

There is a $48 fee attached to this service (from 1 July, 2017).

Once ASIC has approved your application, they will send out written confirmation. Name reservations are valid for 2 months from the date of approval.

It is possible to extend the reservation by lodging a new request and fee. Generally ASIC will only allow two extensions unless there are proven extenuating circumstances.
