Renewal Time? Top Tips for Renewing a Business Name

Renewing a business name is something you’ll need to do regularly to keep the word 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 and still in use, and if they’re not, to free them for use again. If you fail to renew your name, the registration will be cancelled after two months and opened for re-use after six. If you want to keep using this name to do business, staying on top of this crucial step is essential.

Is It Time to Renew My Business Name?

It would be best if you got a renewal notice from the ASIC when your business name is coming up for renewal -- the period of validity is suitable for either one or three years, depending on what you selected upon registration. One tricky consideration is how far before your current validity period expires to submit your renewal application. After all, you don’t want to lose the validity you still have left, but it’s also essential to ensure your renewal is processed before the expiration date to keep your name.

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