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
