Can I choose any name for my company?

Yes, you can choose your own unique company name.

However, there are some restrictions that you need to be aware of when you are choosing a name.

The first thing you will need to do is check to see if there are any other companies or business names already registered with an identical name. You can search for the company name you want here

In addition, it’s important to note that there are restrictions for some words or phrases being used in company names. We recommend downloading Schedule 6 – Availability of names from ASIC. It contains a list of words that they reject. If you are very keen to use one of these words in your company name, please call us to discuss on 03 9898 6666.
