Business Registration Service Beta

The Business registration service Beta makes it easier to register your new business by combining key business and tax registrations on one form. It also features an automatic business or company name check that will let you know if your proposed name is available before you register.

If you're a first time business and aren't sure what registrations you need, we have a Help me decide tool to help you work out:

  • the business structure that will best suit your needs
  • the business and tax registrations you should consider applying for.

Who can use this service?

At the moment the Business registration service Beta is available to new businesses starting as a sole trader, partnership, joint venture, company or trust. In the future, it will also be available to existing businesses and superannuation funds.

What can you apply for?

  • Australian Business Number (ABN)

  • Goods and Services Tax (GST)

  • Pay as You Go (PAYG) withholding
