ASIC Company Reporting

Compliance & Secretarial Administration Service

This accounting service is only relevant to you if you have a company.

This service provided by our accountants in Noosa, Mooloolaba & Brisbane is all about you having peace of mind knowing that company records and any changes in shareholdings etc. are correctly kept up to date with ASIC. 

What is the annual company return?

If you have a company you are required by ASIC to submit a 'company return' once a year. This company return confirms/updates your Director(s) details, shareholding status and details etc. It is mandatory that you complete and submit this to ASIC within the due date each year (close to the anniversary of the establishment of your company). ASIC issues mandatory escalating penalties for late submission of the return, culminating in de-registration of your company if the return is too late.

In addition, ASIC requires that you pay an annual 'registration fee' for having a company. The fee amount varies depending on whether you have a trustee company only of a Self Managed Super Fund, or a trading or other type of company.

Our accountants in Noosa, Mooloolaba & Brisbane provide a service to company owners and controllers to complete the annual return for you with all the correct details, on time.

We charge you a small fee for doing this and you get no late fees and no de-registrations.... as long as you pay the registration fee (which we send you the slip to pay)!

You still have to pay ASIC (of course) but you don't have to do the paperwork...

What if my Shareholders or Director's details change?

If you are using this service (if you have a company and haven't advised us you are doing this yourself, then you are using this service), just advise us by email about any changes when they occur and we will take care of the paperwork.

You will then need to sign off on the documents we give you or organise the relevant company officeholders to do so and return them to the reception area at one of our offices.

We will then lodge the relevant changes directly with ASIC via our online database to ASIC (all you have to do is pay our annual administration fee and the ASIC fee).

What if I want to change my Company name?

Just advise our accountants in Noosa, Mooloolaba & Brisbane by email when you want it to happen and we will prepare the paperwork.

You will need to get the forms we give you authorised by the relevant company officer and return the paperwork to us.

We will lodge documents with ASIC,who will need to approve it before you can change the name of your company, in case it is too similar to another company name.
