Changing officeholder details
Directors and secretaries are known as the officeholders of a company.
Company directors are required by law to apply for a director identification number (director ID).
You need to keep your company officeholders' details up to date. You must tell us of any officeholder changes within 28 days to avoid late fees.
Details you can change include company officeholders' name, role or address.

All companies must have at least one director; if a lodgement would cease the last director, then the lodgement may be rejected.
If a director’s cessation is lodged with ASIC more than 28 days after the cessation date, the cessation date will change to the lodgement date of the form.
To cease yourself as an officeholder, lodge a Form 370 Notification by officeholder of resignation or retirement.
To appoint yourself as an officeholder, contact us.
If your cessation date has been changed by us because the original notification to cease you was lodged more than 28 days after the cessation date, you can apply to ASIC or the Court to amend it.
You can change an officeholder's name online.
Please note that you cannot change your own name online. To change your own name, please contact us.
