- Our Services
- We do not advise you of the suitability or appropriateness of the Services for your individual needs. You must ensure the Services you purchase via the Website are suitable for your specific requirements. If you require further information or guidance, you should contact your accountant or lawyer, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), or the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC).
- Although our team includes start-up experts and accountants, we do not provide or claim to provide, financial or legal advice. Services do not include legal or accounting services.
- Your use of our online ABN and Business Name registration applications is taken as an agreement that any information you supply is complete, accurate, and up-to-date. Supplying the ATO or ASIC with false or misleading information is an offense. It is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to your information, which you can do by contacting us at email@example.com.
- We reserve the right to request that you verify your identity in accordance with these Terms by providing us with a form of identification at any time.
- In the event that you provide us with incorrect information, neither we (nor any of our authorized representatives) will be liable for any charges, damages or losses that arise in connection with that information.
- The aim of this Website is to provide you with clear and succinct information. We are not liable if you misinterpret such information. If you require clarification on any of our information, please contact us.
- We aim to start work on your ABN registration and Business Name application as soon as we receive them from you. You authorize us (through our corresponding division) or our nominated representative to act as:
- Your registered tax agent, acting on your behalf in your ABN application; and
- Your ASIC registered agent, if relevant, acting on your behalf, in your Business Name application.
- If the ATO rejects your application, our registered tax agent will be acting on your behalf, contact the ATO in an attempt to resolve any issues that may have arisen with regard to your application. We will inform you of the reasons that your application failed and will attempt to find appropriate solutions wherever possible. We will advise you immediately after we secure your ABN, and will resign as your tax agent.
- ABN registration services
- We will use electronic and telephone communication methods while communicating with the ATO on your behalf as part of our registered tax agent services.
- On occasion, it might not be possible for us to arrange for the ATO to process your ABN registration application immediately through our electronic system. In such cases, we will review your application and will manually apply for an ABN on your behalf. In a small number of cases, and pertaining to the specifics of an individual client’s application, the ATO specifies a waiting period of up to 28 days after the application is submitted before we can contact them to resolve any issues.
- If the ATO rejects your application, it may be due to one of the following reasons:
– The supplied information is not an exact match for information held on ATO records:
– You currently have previously applied for, or have previously had an ABN; or
– There are problems with the ATO processing system, including, but not limited to, maintenance issues or system downtime.
4. In the event that the ATO rejects your application, we will get in touch with you to explain other options available to you in establishing your business. If you decide you do not wish to proceed, your ABN application will be canceled and you will be issued with a full refund.
If the ATO places your application under review, it will be subjected to the standard 28-day response period. The ATO may advise you directly by post, using the address supplied in your application. You will usually receive notification within 14 days of the date that your application was filed.
If you submit applications for an ABN and Business Name at the same time, and the ABN is refused, we will cancel your ABN and Business Name applications.
We will inform you as soon as we have secured your ABN.
- Business Name registration services
- Any Business Name availability checks conducted using the Website’s ABN Registration Form are dependent on the ASIC business name register (ASIC Register). We will not be held responsible if the ASIC Register system experiences technical problems, including maintenance or downtime, or for omissions or errors in the ASIC Register.
- If the Business Name application form availability check reveals your Business Name is not available, your application for that Business Name will be terminated.
- If for any reason the ASIC Register is unavailable, and you still want to proceed, we can manually submit your Business Name application. In the event of a manual application, we are unable to check the availability of your chosen Business Name using the ASIC Register. If your Business Name is not available, you can decide whether to:
- Select an alternative business name; or
- Receive a full application fee refund from us, minus the Administration Charge.
- If we notify you that your Business Name is not available, and you do not request a different business name within 10 days of this notification, we will issue the refund as detailed above.
- Submitting a Business Name application via the Website does not guarantee successful registration of the Business Name. We are unable to provide any guarantees regarding the registration of your Business Name.
- If ASIC needs to manually review your Business Name, the registration of your Business Name may be delayed, or may not be successful.
- The ASIC Register Business Name availability check is conducted on the date we receive your Business Name application.
- We endeavor to file your Business Name application with ASIC as soon as possible after we receive your application. We will notify you if your desired Business Name is not available when we submit your Business Name application, in order that you can choose an alternative Business Name. We will not be held liable for any costs, damage or direct or indirect losses incurred by you due as a result of your Business Name’s unavailability for registration.
- You recognize that registering a Business Name does not stop third parties registering a similar trademark, business or company name, or using a similar name as an unregistered trademark.
- If, for any reason, ASIC rejects or queries your Business Name application, we will liaise with ASIC on your behalf in an attempt to resolve problems that have arisen with your application. We will notify you of the reasons your application failed and will discuss possible solutions with you wherever possible.
- If ASIC must manually review your application, we may require further evidence from you that supports your right to use certain terms. We will notify you of our requirements, and request you provide all requested information within a specified time period. If you fail to comply, we may discontinue your Business Name application.
- If you wish to seek a review of an ASIC decision, you must lodge an objection within 28 days of the date of the ASIC notice.
- We will act on your behalf and seek to overcome any objections, but cannot make any guarantees of success. In the event that your objection is unsuccessful, your Business Name application will be canceled, and your application fee refunded in full.
- You must obtain an ABN before registering a Business Name. If you fail to obtain an ABN, we may not be able to successfully complete your Business Name registration.
- Fees and charges
- You must pay all fees and charges owed to us upon submitting the ABN registration application form, without deduction, unless otherwise specified in the Terms. All relevant fees and charges must be paid before your ABN registration application can be successfully submitted.
- Fees and charges are listed in Australian Dollars (AUD) unless explicitly otherwise stated.
- We will not offer refunds of fees paid in relation to our Services, to the extent permitted by law, except in the following circumstances:
- You advise us you want to withdraw your ABN or Business Name application before the registration process has been started. In such cases, we may offer a full refund, minus our Administration Charge. Our services, however, are automated and operate in real-time in coordination with the relevant government agency. As a result, Services usually commence immediately after you submit your application and pay the associated fee. We will provide refunds in such circumstances entirely at our discretion.
- You submitted an ABN application that has been put on hold without being issued and you decide to withdraw the application. In this case, and at our discretion, we may offer you a partial refund totaling 50% of the ABN application fee.
- In the event that we receive a refund of any charges you have paid from ASIC, we will inform you right away and process a refund to your designated account.
- We may use any sum we owe to you to off-set any amounts you owe to us in connection with these Terms.
- You are not entitled to a refund as we have not received all the requested details within 15 days from when you submitted your application.
- For Business Name renewals:
- Existing clients will be sent a notification advising the renewal due date and any relevant fees.
- New clients who have requested we deal with Business Name renewals will be notified of the relevant fees once their request is received.
- We accept payment for Business Name renewal fees via both the Website and telephone.
