Anyone can, however you must have at least one director that resides in Australia and a physical Australian address for the registered office of the company. If none of the directors are eligible to work in Australia you will be able to register a company but you may not be able to trade. If in doubt we recommend that you discuss your needs with an accountant or solicitor for professional advice.

eCompanies cannot provide a registered office service or resident director service to international applicants. To find some providers do a search for 'resident director service Australia'.
