Good news! The National Business Names Register has gone live today, 28 May 2012.
If your new business is trading nationally, it is no longer necessary to apply for a business name in each State and Territory - reducing your costs and inconvenience. You can access the National Business Names Register anywhere and anytime - simply visit ASIC Connect, ASIC’s online portal. The registration fee of your business name is only $30 for one year or $70 for three years.
What does this mean for your business if, for example, you already have a registered business in New South Wales? Your business name has been automatically transferred to the National Business Name Register.
Please remember that a business name does not automatically protect your intellectual property, such as your brand.
