If a company, registered body or foreign company is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC), some of its reporting obligations to ASIC will no longer apply. See here for details.
What information will I see for free?

type of company
next review date
locality of registered office, and
whether the organisation holds a professional license or registration (for example an AFS or credit licence).
What information can I purchase?
You can purchase a:
current and/or historical extract
satisfied company charges extract
roles and relationship extract, and
copy of a certificate showing details of registration of corporation(s).
Information brokers also provide additional services for obtaining information on our public registers and may include information from sources other than ASIC.
