Lodge forms online via Registered Liquidator portal
Registered liquidators can lodge most external administration forms online using ASIC's Registered Liquidator (EXAD) portal. Lodging online is quick, simple and streamlined.
Guides to using the online portal
Lodge forms online via Regulatory portal
Registered liquidators are required to lodge statutory reports prepared under sections 422, 438D and 533 of the Corporations Act 2001 and Regulation 5.5.05 of the Corporations Regulations 2001 via the ASIC Regulatory Portal.
There are also transactions on the Regulatory Portal enabling registered liquidators to request ASIC's assistance in an external administration to obtain the company books and records, and to provide notice they do not intend to supply a supplementary report.
The Regulatory Portal replaced previous lodgement channels for these transactions. More information about this change is on our website.
You can get help from ASIC if officers or third parties do not hand over company books and records or directors do not submit a ROCAP (Report on Company Activities and Property).
If you are appointed under Part 5.3A as a voluntary administrator or deed administrator read our Regulatory Guide 82 External Administration: Deeds of company arrangement involving a creditors trust (RG 82).
