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.
