Foreign Company

What is a Foreign Company used for?

A foreign company is an existing company formed in another country, which can be registered in Australia. This allows them to carry on business in Australia. Having registered over 200 foreign companies in the last five years, Castle Corporate is well equipped to assist you with this.

What’s required?

  • In order to register a foreign company, you are required to:
    • have a registered office in Australia (Castle can provide you with a registered office for an annual fee), and
    • appoint a local agent to represent the company to make sure it complies with its legislative requirements in Australia (Castle can provide you with a local agent for an annual fee).
  • Every calendar year, a registered foreign company is required to lodge its annual return¬†(including a copy of its balance sheet, profit and loss and cash flow statements) with ASIC (Castle can lodge these on your behalf for a fee).
  • In addition, registered foreign companies must notify ASIC of any changes to company details (Castle can prepare and lodge these on your behalf for a fee).
