You need to register for online access and create an account before you can lodge online. We have online services for:
- company officeholders
- business names
- registered agents
- AFS licensees
- credit licensees and
- other professional registers.
If you have more than one role, you will need a different account for each (e.g. if you are a company officeholder and business name holder, you will need two accounts).
You can access a range of information and products through our registers. You can also buy extracts of the data and other search products.
We sometimes have service interruptions so we can upgrade our systems. Our 'Service availability' page has details about any outages or service interruptions.
You can sign up to receive an alert when a company lodges a document. You'll receive an email from our automated system when a company tells us about changes.
Before you can update your details online, you'll need to have your unique 'key'. This is so only authorised people can review and change your business details.
Not all forms and documents can be lodged online. Visit our Forms page to see the specific lodgement details for each form. Our Lodging paper forms page has more information on how to complete paper forms.
ASIC APIs give developers an easy way to integrate ASIC Registry interactions (company and business name registration for example) with third party software to create web and mobile services.
ASIC customers can then use these to transact with ASIC.
Information brokers are approved by ASIC to provide search products and services to customers. They do this by accessing ASIC's registers and document retrieval network.
Company directors can use our online services to download company and invoice statements, lodge changes to company details and more.
A registered agent who manages a company can use our online services to update details.
Self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) auditors can use our online services to manage all aspects of their SMSF auditor registration
