ASIC Agents

What Are ASIC Agents?

ASIC agents are registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and have been trained to correctly lodge company related documents and arrange payments to ASIC registers on behalf of their corporate clients. ASIC registered agents do not work on behalf of ASIC but instead act as intermediaries between ASIC and businesses, acting on behalf of these businesses to help them meet their financial information lodgement obligations with ASIC in an efficient and timely manner.

  • Download current ASIC search and debt reports for clients
  • Lodge change of company notices with ASIC
