Renewal Time? Top Tips for Renewing a Business Name

Renewing a business name is something you’ll need to do regularly to keep the name you’re operating under registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). This is done to make sure the business names on file are up to date, still in use, and if they’re not, to free them for use again. If you fail at renewing your name, the registration will be canceled after two months and opened for re-use after six. If you want to keep using this name to do business, it’s important to stay on top of this crucial step.

Is It Time to Renew My Business Name?

You should get a renewal notice from the ASIC when your business name is coming up for renewal -- the period of validity is good for either one or three years, depending on what you selected upon registration. One tricky consideration is how far before the expiration date of your current validity period to submit your application for renewal. After all, you don’t want to lose validity you still have left, but it’s also important to make sure your renewal is processed before the expiration date, to ensure you keep your name.

Top Business Name makes this all easy to achieve. If you’re renewing through Top Business Name, we’ll make sure that your renewal is processed when it’s due, even if you apply earlier. This allows you to be sure that you’re ready when renewal comes around and gives you the option to submit your application whenever it’s convenient rather than right before your current registration expires. You can renew for either one or three years, but if you renew for three years with Top Business Name, you’ll get a discount -- not to mention being covered for a longer time.
