Are the documents legal?
Every order you place through our website is individually prepared and reviewed by our experienced legal partners. Not only do our lawyers ensure your documentation complies with the appropriate legislative and tax office requirements, they also ensure documents are structured and maintained in line with the latest industry innovations.
Significantly, our legal partners assume the risk and responsibility for the document its signs off – not you. This greatly mitigates any action that can be taken against you in relation to the documentation that you provide your clients (for example in circumstances where the deed is deemed as non-compliant with the law).
Given the level of assurance offered by our documents, our service is one of the most affordable available on the market.
What methods can I use to order a document or company registration?

How are the documents delivered to me?

We send you the documents in a print-ready Portable Document Format file, otherwise known as a 'pdf' file. To open and print the document, you'll need Adobe Acrobat, or an equivalent PDF reader.
I have noticed an error in the document I ordered?
If you notice an error (eg spelling mistake, typo, wrong associate) caused by ABNAustralia.com.au we will update your document and pay for any resultant costs free of charge. If the error is caused by the information you have provided, we will in all cases do our best to correct the mistake as soon as possible however there may be a fee depending on the delay and nature of the corrections required. For company registrations, ASIC often allows a very short grace period to make changes after registration, however, this may not always be available and we can therefore not guarantee that there won't be additional ASIC fees payable.
Our experienced staff members individually review all orders submitted and are trained to look out for common mistakes, spelling errors, typos and inconsistent information - saving you costs and headaches down the line.

What do you do if ASIC rejects your application to register a company?
If ASIC rejects your application to register a company, then it's easy enough to fix things and it is free — there is no charge from us, and no charge from ASIC. Below, we have set out some common reasons about why ASIC might reject your application to register a company.
Address related issues
ASIC accepts only property addresses that Australia Post accepts as postal addresses. ASIC will reject an address that is missing a unit number, suite number or floor level (if that information is needed for proper delivery), that includes ‘Corner of’, or that is a PO Box.
Name is rejected
ASIC will reject a name if it is inappropriate, or already taken — or is similar to a name already taken.
Information is missing or inaccurate
Generally these messages indicate that a answer has been left blank somewhere, or has inaccurate information.
