Business names

Generally, you will need to register a business name if you carry on a business or trade within Australia and you are not trading under your own entity name.  In 2012 the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) became the body responsible for registering, renewing and administering business names.  ASIC has also issued a Regulatory Guide to registering your business name.

Before registering a business name do a Trade Mark search to ensure that the name you choose will not infringe a trade mark.  Go to the Government TM Check website.
