Key Points

  • The national system to register business names will commence on 28 May 2012
  • The benefit is that businesses pay one fee and face only one process to register a business name in all states and territories across Australia
  • The Australian Securities and Investments Commission is conducting a national roadshow, with session dates and times below.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission’s (ASIC) national business names register commences on 28 May. This means that business name registration, renewals and searching for business details will be administered by a single national register.

ASIC is hosting a national business names roadshow to help business name holders and industry professionals understand the new register.

ASIC's roadshow presentations and webcast will:

• Provide an opportunity for industry to hear how the law has changed and how people can best prepare
• Offer a sneak peek at ASIC's new online service, ASIC Connect, and explain its functions
• Outline the new process for registering a business name
• Explain what will happen to existing registrations and how the transition from state and territory agencies will take place
• Answer common questions about the new service.

Roadshow sessions will be presented by ASIC senior executives Kathrine Morgan-Wicks and Rosanne Bell.

Members and their clients are invited to attend one of ASIC's free presentations being held in capital cities over the coming weeks.

Roadshow webcast
A webcast of the roadshow and related materials will be available on ASIC’s website in May.
