5 things you need to know about Company Registration
- Registering a company is a key first step in setting up your business structure if you’ve chosen to use a company structure. It’s important that you incorporate correctly, to ensure that you’re launching your business on a solid footing.
- There are essentially three ways to register a company: (i) have a lawyer register your company for you, (ii) use online company incorporation software such as ecompanies.com.au, (iii) register it yourself.
- Company registration in Australia is done through the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). Whether you register yourself, use a lawyer or use an online company incorporator, the end result is your company registration will go through ASIC.
- Before registering, you will need to work out how many shareholders the company will have, what their respective shareholdings will be, how many classes of shares you will be issuing, and who will be the directors.
- Finally, remember that if your company has more than one shareholder, you’ll need a shareholders agreement!
