Trading names are being retired



27 April 2018

The Australian Business Register (ABR) is working with Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) in preparation for the retirement of trading names.

To continue trading under a specific name, you need to register it as a business name. After a business name is successfully registered it will appear on ASIC's business names register and the ABN Lookup.

From November, all trading names will be removed from ABN Lookup. Only registered business names will continue to be listed, so check you have registered your trading name as a business name with ASIC by then.

So, do we need to register for business name if we don't want our full name to be seen in their tax invoice?

Anyway they can see it if they bother to look up in the ABR website.

They are missing out on money, that's the bottom line. Registration of a business name attracts a fee which in my opinion is another tax. Instead of putting prices up the new ripoff is calling increases fees or levies.

It's not a tax. You get exclusive right to use the name that your register. That's no different to registering a domain name, which you also pay for.

I’ll just start trading as “Sydney Uber” if you reckon there’s nothing that Australian Business names do for the fee they charge, then I’ll be OK.

That’s funny I though you always have to registered with ASIC to be able use a trading name .

I think they worry that you might have same trading name as someone else’s . To get a business name you can’t have a similar or same name as Some else .
