Applying to the court for reinstatement
A reinstatement application may be made to a court for an order that ASIC reinstate a company. These applications must be made to a superior court such as the Supreme Court, the Federal Court or the Family Court.
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.
If you need further assistance with the application process, contact us on (03) 5177 3050.
Serving ASIC with the application
Applications for court reinstatement should be served on ASIC as a court generally seeks ASIC's position on the application before making a decision.
Applications in all State/Territory courts should be served on ASIC:
- by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- or by post (if email is unavailable) to:
Court Reinstatements c/o ASIC Property Law Group
GPO Box 9827

Lodging the order with ASIC
Once you've applied for court reinstatement and obtained a court order, you must send us:
- the original court order – this will have an original stamped seal of the court and
- a completed Cover page for office copy of a court order (Form 105).
Send the original court order and Form 105 to:
Australian Securities and Investments Commission
PO Box 4000
Gippsland Mail Centre VIC 3841
Once we've received the court order, we'll reinstate the company's registration. This takes five business days from when we receive the order.
