What is a company register?
A company register is a set of documents that is needed by every company to be compliant with the Corporations Act 2001. This set of documents
needs to be kept up to date as changes are made to the company, and are kept at either the registered office, or principal
place of business.
If you register your company directly with ASIC, you will need to provide the company register yourself. If you perform
the registration through an ASIC registered agent
like eCompanies, the corporate register is normally included as part of the service.
What documents are contained in a company register?
At registration the minimum documentation required to satisfy the Corporations Act 2001 is:
- Completed Director and Secretary consent forms
- Completed applications for shares
- Minutes of meetings of Directors
- Share Certificates
- Share member registry
- Register of Option Holders (If you have them)
- Register of Debentures (If you have them)
- Consent to use registered office (if the company does not occupy the registered office)
You are required to update these documents as changes are made.
