Registered agents

Welcome to the Registered Agents section.

Here you will find all the information you need to know about what a registered agent is and how to use our online lodgement services.

These services allow you to sign up for our email alerts, check and change company details, review annual statements and invoices as well as lodge forms.

Latest update

From 1 October 2014, ASIC Registered Agents will be required to lodge the following forms online:

  • Form 484 - Change to company details
  • Form 6010 - Application for voluntary deregistration of a company
  • Form 205A - Notification of resolution to change company name
  • Form 362 - Notification by a company to nominate or cease a registered agent or contact address

This change is part of a long term vision of moving our transactions online.

Benefits of being able to lodge these forms online include reduced levels of risk for late fees, reduced fraudulent activity (with having our online authentication process) as well as increased convenience for those who wish to lodge documents after standard business hours.

You may currently experience a data or online lodgement issue for a small number of transactions (sub-forms). For these transactions you will need to submit a Request to Lodge Documents via email.
