A new National Business Names Registration System is expected to commence on 28 May 2012 and will replace the current state and territory registers.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) will be administering the national business names registration service.

ASIC is hosting a National Business Names Roadshow to help businesses understand the new business names register.

The Roadshow will:

  • help businesses prepare for the new service
  • outline the new process for registering a business name
  • explain what will happen to existing registrations and how the transition from state and territory agencies will take place.

The Roadshow will visit all capital cities during April and May 2012.

For more information on the business names register, visit the ASIC External link website.
