Updating company addresses with ASIC - video transcript

Here at the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, our job is help regulate all Australian companies. Your job as a company officeholder is to make sure your company complies with the law. This includes keeping all of your details up to date, including your company addresses.

Your company has different types of addresses and we use each one differently:

  • Your registered office address is where we'll send any letters or correspondence. This must be a physical address in Australia
  • If your company is managed by an accountant or an agent, we'll send any correspondence to their contact address instead
  • Your principal place of business is where your business is located. This must also be a physical address in Australia and is kept for our records
  • You need to tell us of any changes to your officeholder's residential address and you also need to tell us of any changes to your member's addresses. A member's address can be a post office box or a physical address.

If any of your company addresses change, you must let us know within 28 days. Otherwise, your company will get a late fee. In some cases, we may even deregister your company.

You can use our online services keep your details up to date. Visit asic.gov.au/addresses to learn how to update your information online.
