Available now: a new quick and easy way to renew your business name

ASIC's new, streamlined payment process allows you to renew your business name registration in a few simple steps.

It’s designed to make renewing your business name easier, so you can spend more time running your business, and less time administering it.

To use the new service, simply click the aqua Pay now button on the right hand side of this screen.

All you need is your account number, as shown on your business name renewal notice, or Australian Business Number (ABN).

If you haven't already given us an email address, you'll need to provide one so we can send you your record of registration.

You can choose to pay by credit card (MasterCard or Visa) using our secure online payment service, or pay later by invoice (BPAY and Australia Post).

For further information, see our Renew your business name page.

Registering a business name – do your research first

Starting a business should be an exciting time but sometimes it can be confusing too. To make registering your business name easier, we've developed some handy resources you can use.

Before registering your business name with us, here are some things to consider:
You should then check that name you want is available. Our check business name availability search tells you straight away.

Remember that registering a business name does not mean you own it. Consider registering a trademark if you want to protect your brand or business name.

When your registration has been successfully completed we will email you.

For further information, see our Register your business name page.
