Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to register a company?

Prices start from $538 (government fee). There are additional packages available for tax registrations, legal documents, assistance when registering and legal or accounting advice. Find out more here

How long does it take to register a company?

The company registration form generally takes around 15 minutes to complete. Once submitted, the company will usually be registered within 2-3 minutes (Providing there are no issues with your application). You can start trading as soon as the company is registered! Find out more here

What information is required to register a new company?

You will need to have the following information:

  • Directors / Secretaries: Full name (including middle name or as set out on passport), full residential address as well as the date and place of birth.
  • Shareholders: Full name (including middle name or as set out on passport), address and number of shares for each shareholder of the company.

You will also need an address for the registered office and principal place of business. To make this simple, Lawpath offers a virtual office address service.

What type of company does Lawpath set up? Pty Ltd only?
Lawpath sets up Pty Ltd companies, which is short for Proprietary Limited.

This type of company structure operates privately and does not offer shares to the general public. Small business owners tend to set up a private company when they register with Lawpath.

Lawpath does not register public companies.

What do I do if one of my officeholders is not an Australian resident?

For proprietary companies, there must be at least one officeholder that lives in Australia.

For public companies, there must be at least three officeholders (not counting alternate directors). At least two of the directors must live in Australia.

If a company does not have enough officers in Australia, it will breach the Corporations Act 2001. New officeholders must be appointed as soon as possible if it doesn’t meet the requirements above.

Does lawpath set up NFP (Non-profit organisations) companies?

Lawpath does not set up non-profit organisations.

How is it that an ACN takes 20-30min to be ready, but the ABN itself may take up to two business days?
An ABN may take up to two business days to be generated as it is manually processed with the ATO and ABR, and this is their expected lead time. If there are any details missing, or inaccurate details provided, it may take up to 28 business days for the ABN to be generated as it will need to be manually reviewed by the ABR.
