Electronic Company Registrations

How can I use EDGE?

Our EDGE Reference Guide provides detailed information about using EDGE.  Your dedicated software will also come with instructions.

Direct debit/credit payment for lodgements

If you use EDGE to lodge documents that have a fee, you can pay by direct debit or credit.

To set up direct debit or credit payments you will need to complete a Direct debit request (Form RA04). This authorises us to debit money from the company's account.

If you are choosing direct credit, you do not need to nominate any account details, but you will need to deposit money into your ASIC account before you can start lodging forms.

Information on direct debit or direct credit is in the ASIC Electronic Lodgement Protocol.
