Everything you need to know about starting and maintaining an Australian business name.

How can I register a business name if my ABN is suppressed?

If your ABN is suppressed we are unable to register a business name for you.

Instead you will need to register the business name through ASIC directly. To do this you will need to contact ASIC directly on 1300 300 630.

They may need to verify some personal details. After that the ASIC representative will provide assistance in how to proceed in registering your business name. Most commonly, they will provide you with a smart form to fill out and submit.
