Company Registration

Learn how to register a company, how best to set up a company in Australia with ASIC and more.

Your website application for a company has the role of Public Officer listed, what do they do?

The Public Officer’s role is to be the company’s representative and correspond directly with the ATO and the ABR, if necessary. ASIC does not keep a record of who the Public Officer is, so it will not show up on their register, however in our suite of register documents, there is a prefilled consent to act as Public Officer and a letter to the ATO regarding the appointment of the Public Officer.

Public Officer's are not automatically appointed to the company once registered because they have been identified in the company registration process. Instead, the Public Officer is appointed electronically at the time of applying for an ABN, or, by posting the provided letter to the ATO once signed.
