Forms used to notify common company changes



You must tell us when your company details change. The Corporations Act requires you to tell us about these changes within a certain period of time. If you tell us after this time, you may have to pay a late fee. You should not wait until you receive your annual statement
to tell us about changes to your company details. | About annual statements.


Many changes can be lodged online and we recommend you take advantage of the convenience of lodging online. | How to become an online user.
