Frequently asked questions
Why would I choose you rather than ASIC?
By centralising your ASIC commercial arrangements with Smartcorp we take care of all ASIC communication so you can focus on your clients needs. We also provide smooth handling of invoices, and 30 day invoice terms (to approved clients). Our ordering process is simple and streamlined, and after your order is completed you can access your clients ASIC documentation online.
How does the Smartcorp Business Name Registration process work?
After you've submitted your order, we will instantly apply to ASIC to register the business name. When your business name is approved by ASIC, we will email you a confirmation. The Record of Registration will be issued by ASIC approximately 48 hours later. We will email the registration documents to you as soon as we receive them and you can also access them at any time through your Smartcorp Order Status page.
What documents do I receive from Smartcorp?
When your order is finalised by ASIC, you will instantly receive via email your:
> Record of Registration
> Welcome Letter (from ASIC)
Do I need to know my clients ABN?
Yes you do need to know the ABN to register a business name. If you don’t have quick access to an ABN, you can easily identify ABN holder or ABN using our search tool.
How much does a Smartcorp Business Name Registration cost?
You can register your clients business name for 1 year ($78) or 3 years ($157). These prices are for prepaid and include GST and ASIC fees. A 30 Days Invoice price is available for approved clients. Refer to the product pricing page for more information.
Can I register a Business Name at the same time as a new company registration?
As soon as your new company has an ACN allocation by ASIC you will be able to apply for an ABN (through the ABR web site). After your ABN is issued you can then apply for an associated Business Name through our regular Business Name ordering screens.
How will I know when the Business Name is about to expire?
We will send you a notification before renewal is due - you then click through and complete the renewal order
What happens if ASIC rejects my application?
If ASIC rejects your business name application, we will immediately contact you to advise of the status and help you through a new Business Name registration process.
