If you are starting a company and have a company name already in mind, you should check if the name is available before beginning the registration process.

To check the availability of a company name, you can use ASIC’s name availability search. It is important to note that if your desired name is already taken or is very similar to an already registered name, you will not be able to register the company using that name.

You can also check the availability of a company name by using our search function here.

If you have already chosen a name but are not yet ready to complete the registration process, you can reserve a name for up to 2 months. To find out more about reserving a name, please click here.
