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.
From 2 November 2015, registered agents can lodge changes online using a company's corporate key, without being appointed to the company as their registered agent.
ASIC Registered Agents are required to lodge the following forms online:
- Change to company details (Form 484 - online)
- Application for voluntary deregistration of a company (Form 6010)
- Notification of resolution to change company name (Form 205A)
- Notification by a company to nominate or cease a registered agent or contact address (Form 362)
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.
