Business Name Registration

If you would like to trade under a different business name to your company name, then you need to register a business name. If you would like to register a business name please complete the below section. There is an additional fee for the registration of a business name.

Invalid Input

Business Name Registration Overview
A business name, also known as a trading name, is a name or title under which a person, or other legal entity, carries on business. It also helps customers and other businesses find, identify and connect with your business. You need to register a business name if you conduct business under a name other than your company name. When you register a business name, you register it nationally with ASIC. This means you can operate your business in any state or territory in Australia.

It’s important to note that registering a business name with ASIC doesn’t protect your business name from being used by someone else. To protect your business name and brand, you will also need to register it as a trademark with IP Australia (see trademark registration services).

We can provide business registration services for an additional fee. Please complete the below section to indicate your preference.
Invalid Input

Please choose an option

Please don't select both options, just choose one.

Please let us know your name.

Note: Your preferred name may not be available due to a pre-existing registration or the similarity to an existing registered name.

Trademark Registration

Our trade mark registration services are suitable for business owners and their advisers looking to legally protect their brand in the marketplace. We work with you to understand your requirements and brand assets, and then tailor an affordable registration plan accordingly. If you are interested then tick the box below and one of our agents will be in contact. Our trademark registration services start from $330 + government charges.

Invalid Input

Why register a trademark?
A trade mark can be your most valuable marketing tool. Sometimes called a brand, your trade mark is your identity - the way you show your customers who you are. The more successful your business, the more valuable your trade mark becomes. Most of us believe that registering a business name, incorporating a company, or registering a domain name means that we will own that name. But in Australia that is not the case.

FACT: A registered trademark will take precedence over business names, company registrations and domain names. Without a trademark you run the risk of someone else claiming the right to the name that you trade under.

The best way to protect a name is with trade mark registration. Trade mark registration provides the owner with the exclusive right to use that name throughout Australia and to prevent others from using a similar name in relation to the registered goods or services. Registering a trade mark can be a lengthy process. It involves classifying your brand into one of IP Australia’s 45 classes and conducting a comprehensive trade mark search before making your application.

Drawing from years of experience in successful trademark registrations for clients, ABNAustralia.com.au is able to provide a range of trade mark registration services at very affordable rates (starting from $330 + government fees). If you would like to find out more about our trademark services simply tick the checkbox on this form below and we will be in contact.
Understanding the benefits of trademark registration
Did you know that registering your company name, business name, or domain name is not the same as trademarking it? The differences between company names, business names, domain names, and trademarks sometimes causes confusion. Company name holders often think that by registering a company name or business name with ASIC they have protected a brand or trading name – whereas in fact the business names laws that exist today do not offer that type of protection. The obligation to register a company or business name is separate to protecting any intellectual property rights in a name or brand normally achieved through trademark registration.

A company name or business name does not give you exclusive trading rights or ownership over that name. Registering a particular name with ASIC does not stop another person from registering a similar name. It also does not give you the exclusive right to use the name or part of the name. Importantly, registering a business name will not stop someone who has registered the name as a trademark from using it. In fact, the opposite is more likely in that using a business name that is similar to someone else’s registered trade mark could cause you legal problems - they may be able to legally enforce you to stop using your business name in the marketplace.

This is why you should always conduct a trade mark search before deciding on a business name to ensure there is no clash, and also protect your brand name in the marketplace by registering your own trademark.

Outsourced ASIC Compliance (Registered Agent Service)
Corporations Law requires registered companies to keep and maintain appropriate statutory records in relation to directors, shareholders and other matters. In addition to the ongoing maintenance requirements, each company has an obligation to review the company statement issued by ASIC each year to ensure that the database of ASIC matches the office holder and shareholder ownership of the company.

  • Appoint ABN Australia as your company's ASIC Registered Agent
  • We maintain your company's corporate registry details with ASIC using EDGE approved software
  • Everytime there is a change to your company details (eg change of directors, shareholders, share structure, addresses) we lodge the necessary paperwork with ASIC on your behalf and prepare all the necessary governance documents and board resolutions.

Avoid ASIC Late Fees & Penalties
Did you know that The Corporations Act 2001 requires companies to tell ASIC of changes to details generally within 28 days after the change has occurred? In fact ASIC imposes strict lodgement criteria and imposes heavy fines to ensure the integrity of its database. The penalty for late lodgement begins at $80, with failure to lodge documents with the Commission upwards of $1,000 or even 3 months imprisonment.

Put your trust in the industry experts
Appointing ABN Australia as your registered agent significantly reduces your compliance burden, ensures you avoid ASIC late fees and penalties, and provides real value for money. More information on our Registered Agent Services can be found here.
