Private service providers
You can choose to register a company online with the Australian Government Business Registration Service 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 fees ASIC charges and collects for the government are set by the Corporations (Fees) Regulations. These fees must be paid by the company. A PSP may collect and pay these fees to ASIC on behalf of the company.
PSPs may charge an additional amount on top of the fee set by the Corporations Fees Regulation. You should check the PSP's fees before you use their services.
PSPs may provide services over and above registering your company.
Examples include helping update your details when they change, reminders when due dates fall and business advice.
