When setting up your business, if you choose to operate as a sole trader then you will have to register your business name with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC). However if your business name is your, or your partner's, first name and surname, then there is no need to register.
- Sally Miller has a jewellery business named 'Sally Miller'. As her business is trading under her own name, she does not need to register for a business name.
- Jodie Hart has a floral business named 'Hart Flowers'. As her business is not trading under her own name, she will need to register the business name 'Hart Flowers'.
