NZAUConnect app allows trans-Tasman business searches on the go

NZAUConnect Mobile Application - Update available

An update to ASIC's mobile search application NZAUConnect is available for users on Apple devices. The updated version (1.14) will resolve the screen formatting issues for iPad users running iOS7.

The update is now available for download from the App Store.

You can now use your smartphone to quickly and easily find details on almost five million registered organisations in Australia and New Zealand with the release of the NZAUConnect app.

A joint initiative of the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) and the New Zealand Companies Office (NZCO), NZAUConnect brings together two million records from ASIC's companies register, 550,000 records from the NZCO's companies register, and 1.7 million records included on the Australian National Business Names Register — enabling a person to search a total of almost five million organisations.

Through NZAUConnect, you can use your smartphone or tablet to access information including a business' registration status, registration number and principal place of business.

Beyond enabling you to search the Australian and New Zealand business registers at your convenience, NZAUConnect allows you to save your most common searches, and share search results by email.
