Update business name representative details
There are different types of representatives that can be appointed for your business name.
- Organisation representative
- Legal personal representative
- Notified successor
- Debtor representative
- Principal contact
If your business name is held by an organisation, you must appoint a representative as the primary business contact.
This does not apply if your business name is held by a company or other registered body.
Legal personal representative
When an individual business name holder is deceased and you are the executor of their estate, you must appoint yourself as a legal representative.
This does not apply if the business name holder is a partnership, company or trust.
If you believe you will inherit a business name's assets when the holder has deceased, you can appoint yourself as a notified successor.
A debtor representative can be appointed to manage a business name's liquidation, external administration, or bankruptcy.
If you have been nominated to receive correspondence for a business name, you can appoint yourself as the principal contact.
