From the Knowledge Base

What is a proprietary limited company?

Proprietary limited companies are the most common type of company registered in Australia.

Under Australian law, a proprietary limited company (abbreviated as 'Pty Ltd') is a business structure that has at least one shareholder and no more than 50 non-employee shareholders, where the liability of shareholders is limited to the balance amount (if any) which remains unpaid on the shares held by its members. The company must have at least one director who is resident in Australia, and there are restrictions on the company’s ability to raise funding from the public.

Who can register a company?

Almost anyone can register a company in Australia. The only requirements are that company directors are at least 18, at least one director resides in Australia, and the company has a physical registered office with an Australian address (i.e. no PO Box). There may be other restrictions if a person has been banned or disqualified by ASIC.

How much does registration cost?

We offer company registration starting from $598 (including GST and the $479 government fee). Work for an accounting firm? Your first company registration is free under our introductory offer for accounting firms.
