A business name is the name or title under which you or your organisation conducts business. You must register the name with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), unless:
- you’re a sole trader and your operating name is exactly your first name and family name
- you’re in a partnership and your operating name is exactly the same as all of the partners’ names, or
- you’re already registered as an Australian company and your operating name is exactly the same as your company’s name.
