Business names

New national business names register

NSW Fair Trading no longer registers business names in NSW. The national business names registration service is managed by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

To register a business name

Visit the ASIC website or call 1300 300 630 to register, search, renew, cancel or make changes to a business name. New businesses need to get an Australian Business Number (ABN) before you can register a national business name.
