ASIC Registered Agent
$99.00 / year
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.
As the officeholders of your Australian company or companies are ultimately responsible for compliancy with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), one of the key benefits of using Director Corporate Services (“DCS”) as your ASIC Registered Agent is that we handle the ASIC compliance of a large volume of companies regularly. As such, we have a thorough knowledge and familiarity with the statutory 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 which means we monitor your company or companies, 24/7.
We will enable your company or companies to meet compliance requirements by:
- Downloading company annual statements from our EDGE or Online ASIC Mailbox and ensuring officeholders are alerted as soon as possible, after receipt of same. This enables directors and business owners to review the company details and also alerts them as to when ASIC fees are due.
- Meet ASIC requirements and reporting time frames with preparation of ASIC forms and supporting documentation for company transactions.
- Lodgement of most required ASIC forms online, from our EDGE or Online ASIC Mailbox (additional fees may apply).
