  • Ensure that your new company name is available - The new company name must not be identical to an existing entity and must not contain any restricted words (ASIC restricted words) You can use our ASIC Company Name Availability Check facility to ensure your new company name is available. If the new company name is held by a business name, you must ensure the owner(s) of the business name are on the new company. If the business name holder is an individual then that individual may be a current director or member. If the business name holder is a company, then it has to be the company itself changing its name. If the business name is held by a partnership or trust, you cannot proceed with a company name change – you may need to consider changing the ownership of the business name.
