November deadline: Trading names to be retired

An excerpt from ASIC.

If you require assistance with this matter please contact the office.

“From November 2018, trading names will be removed from the ABN Lookup. The ABN Lookup contains a list of all Australian Business Numbers (ABNs) and any associated business names.

If you want to trade under a specific name, you’ll need to register it as a business name with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

You don’t need to register a business name if you trade under your own name (‘John Smith’), but you’ll need to have a business name if it’s anything else (‘John Smith Plumbing’).”

Liability limited by a scheme approved under Professional Standards Legislation.
