You may need this registration if you intend to carry on a business in Australia.
You must register your business name unless you trade under:
- your own individual name
- all the individual names of the partners in a partnership
- a company or registered body name.
This national registration service replaces past state and territory services, so that all businesses in Australia only need to register each name once on a single national register.
Please note that there are various words that are restricted for use in business names unless an application is made.
