The Australian Businesses Registrar (ABR) provides public information on registered businesses names. Before starting a business, it’s important to understand the legalities surrounding registration and ensure you’re ready to go with your Australian Business Number (ABN).
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) provides detailed information on registering and protecting your business. It offers a range of information including your obligations and the range of services available to you. The ASIC website also provides an online portal for you to manage your business name registrations.
An ABN search can be useful to see if the business is registered for GST. It is also a great resource for locating ABN details for your customer invoices and accounting systems.
