Highlighting problem addresses on companies register

To ensure the accuracy of company information on the company register,we highlight problem addresses.

The following messages will be placed before the address:

INFORMATION RECEIVED ADDRESS MAY BE INVALID DD/MM/YYYY

– when we have been notified an address may be incorrect.

ASIC MAIL RETURNED DD/MM/YYYY

– when mail sent has been returned to us

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

The following types of addresses will be highlighted:

  • registered office
  • principal place of business
  • contact address nominated on a Notification to nominate, change or cease a contact address for a company (Form 486)
  • residential address of officeholders

Where the contact address is the address of the registered agent of the company we will not be highlighting any problems with the address. We intend on contacting the agent directly to advise of the problem.

Where an officeholder's address is highlighted, this will appear across all roles that the person holds in any company.

The highlighted problem addresses will be seen on:

  • annual statements
  • company and personal name searches (both current and historical)
  • roles and relationships searches
  • data downloads (both online and via EDGE)
  • ad hoc company statements
  • invoices and notices
