The Australian Securities & Investments Commission is urging business owners to attend the remaining information sessions it’s currently hosting to explain its new national business names registration service.

The information sessions, which are hosted by ASIC, kicked off on April 17 and will run through to May 16 in capital cities (see dates/locations below). Led by ASIC senior executives Kathrine Morgan-Wicks and Rosanne Bell, the sessions aim to help business name holders and industry professionals better understand ASIC’s national business names register and hear first-hand how the transition from state and territory agencies will take place.

Commencing on May 28, the new register will enable the 1.8 million current business name holders to register their name nationally through an easy to use online service. Businesses will only need to register their name once, and will no longer be required to register separately in each state and territory they operate in. Existing business names currently registered in a state or territory will be automatically transferred to the new register.ASIC_logoLG

Morgan-Wicks said the sessions will also provide attendees with a preview of ASIC’s new online service, ASIC Connect.

“Our presentations in each capital city will provide industry with an opportunity to hear how they can best prepare for the new national register and have their questions answered,” ASIC’s Deputy Chief of Operations, Morgan-Wicks, said.

“Essentially, we’re aiming to ensure ASIC’s registry services are more accessible and well equipped to meet the growing needs of our customers. Our new business names register will provide an easier, quicker and cheaper service; it’s just one of a number of initiatives we hope to introduce this year to provide a seamless and efficient online registry service.”
