Applying to the court for reinstatement
You can apply for a court order to order ASIC to reinstate a company. These applications can be made to either the Federal Court of Australia or the Supreme Court of any one of the states and territories.
Please refer to Regulatory Guide 83 Reinstatement of companies (RG 83) for information on how to apply to the court and the relevant ASIC policies.
