Company Registration

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

What information is required to register a company?

Before you begin the online application form to register your new company, you must ensure that you have the following information at the ready:

  • A company name
  • A registered office address – this must be a physical street address, not a PO BOX, to where ASIC will send specific notices and on some occasions deliver service documents in person
  • Place of business address – often the same as the registered office address. Again, must be a physical street address
  • Director/Secretary details – full name, residential address, date and place of birth. At least one director must reside within Australia
  • Shareholder details – Full name/company name (can be individual or company), residential address, share distribution

This information is of a general nature only and does not constitute professional advice. You must seek professional advice in relation to your particular circumstances before acting.
