A new national business names registration system has commenced.
The national business names register is administered by the Commonwealth Government via the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
The Queensland register, previously administered by the Office of Fair Trading, has been closed. All business names previously registered in Queensland were transitioned to the new national register.
All data held or updated by the Office of Fair Trading is now held by ASIC.
ASIC advises it is progressively loading this data into the ASIC systems and it will all be available for searching by the public by 18 September 2012.
For all business name enquiries visit the ASIC website or call 1300 300 630.
