ARD Corporate Services, as your ASIC Registered Agent, will act as intermediary between officeholders of your Australian companies and ASIC to help your companies meet their lodgement obligations more efficiently.
ASIC Registered Agent
$99.00 / year
As the officeholders of your Australian companies are ultimately responsible for the companies compliancy, one of the key benefits of using ARDCS as your Registered Agent is that we handle the ASIC compliance of a large volume of companies regularly. As such, we are more familiar with the requirements companies need to meet under the Corporations Act 2001 (the Act).
Over the years, ASIC has been progressively moving online for lodgement of updates to the companies register. This aligns with how we currently deliver services to our corporate customers, where paper forms are available only on an exception basis. We have direct integration with ASIC systems and we process and monitor your companies 24/7.
We will enable your companies to meet compliance requirements by:
- Downloading company annual statements from our EDGE or Online Mailbox with ASIC and ensure officeholders are alerted as soon as possible after receipt of same, to review the details and remind when fees are due to avoid late payment penalties.
- Meet ASIC requirements and report time frames with preparation of ASIC forms and supporting documentation for company transactions.
- Lodgement of most ASIC forms online from our EDGE or Online Mailbox with ASIC (additional fees may apply).
Online lodgements of transactions performed by ASIC Registered Agents reduce late lodgement penalties, fraudulent activity (by having an online authentication process) and also offer an increased convenience for those who wish to lodge documents for immediate company updates when company details are required for other purposes.
Benefits of a Professional Registered Office and Registered Agent
