If you have to take a break or finish the registration later, you can just go to the Applications tab and click on the company to keep going. Each time, you need to do the ASIC name check, but all of your information will be there available still. Let’s get this show on the road!

What you need to know

Can anyone register a company?

Yes, so long as all directors are at least 18 years old, the company’s registered office is in Australia and at least one of the director lives and pays tax in Australia – this person will already have a personal tax file number.

How much does it cost to register a company with Law On Earth?

Pricing starts from $515 which is just the cost of the ASIC Fee, and a $50 fee to cover the entire process of registration and you get the 13 critical documents for establishing the company including the Constitution. Premium Members only pay a $20 fee plus the ASIC fee, so if you don’t have a premium membership yet, you’re missing some massive discounts.

What address should I use? I don’t want to put my home address as my company registered office.

You may be able to use your accountant’s office address or a virtual office as your company registered address. Keep in mind that your home address will appear on the company records if you will be a director or shareholder though, so this information will still be publicly available, as will your date and place of birth.

How many shareholders do I need? Can they be companies and Trusts, and what details will you need?

You must have at least one shareholder, and they can be either an individual person, an Australian company, an overseas company, or a person/company acting as trustee for a trust. If you choose for a company to be a shareholder, you need to provide the Company Number, registered address, and country of incorporation. If any of the shareholders are acting as trustee for Trust, you’ll need to provide the name of the Trust.
