Private service providers
You can choose to register or renew your business name with ASIC, or by using a private service provider (PSP).
A PSP may be your accountant, solicitor or another business who provides online services with ASIC.
The business name fees ASIC charges and collects for the Australian Government are set by the Business Names Registration (Fees) Regulations 2011. These fees must be paid by the business owner. A PSP may collect and pay these fees to ASIC on behalf of the business owner.
The PSP may charge a fee for their service, in addition to the amount that the law states. You should check the PSP's fees before using their services.
PSPs may provide services over and above a business name's registration or renewal.
Examples include domain name checks, help with other registrations, reminders when due dates fall and business advice.
