ASIC Agent Services

For business owners, managing financial obligations is a critical task that often involves navigating complex compliance requirements.


Among these, adherence to the standards set by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is paramount.


ASIC acts as the regulatory authority overseeing corporate behaviour and financial reporting in Australia, making compliance a key element in maintaining your company's legal and financial health.

ASIC mandates a range of responsibilities for companies, including the upkeep of company details such as director and shareholder information, addresses, and annual solvency resolutions. In certain cases, companies may also need to lodge financial statements.


ASIC Agent Services at HelloLedger simplify these requirements by ensuring that your company's records are accurately maintained and all necessary documentation is submitted timely.

ASIC Agent Services FAQs

  • What are ASIC Agent Services?

  • ASIC Agent Services involve a registered agent managing your obligations under the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) regulations. This includes handling your company's annual statements, maintaining company details, and ensuring timely submissions of necessary documents and updates.

  • What does an ASIC Agent actually do?

  • An ASIC Agent takes responsibility for lodging required documents with ASIC, such as changes in company details, annual reviews, registration of new companies, and maintaining company registers. They also assist in communicating important compliance information from ASIC to your company.

  • Can an ASIC Agent represent my company in legal matters?

  • While ASIC Agents handle regulatory filings and compliance, they do not represent companies in legal disputes or provide legal advice. Their role is specifically focused on compliance with ASIC’s administrative requirements.

  • Why do I need an ASIC Agent for my business?

  • Having an ASIC Agent helps ensure that your company complies with all legal requirements set by ASIC. Agents alleviate the administrative burden of managing ASIC obligations, prevent penalties related to non-compliance, and keep your business informed about regulatory changes that could affect your operations.


  • How can ASIC Agent Services benefit my business?

  • Utilising ASIC Agent Services can save you time and reduce the risk of compliance errors. Agents provide expertise in regulatory requirements, ensuring that filings are accurate and deadlines are met, which allows you to focus more on running your business rather than on administrative tasks.

  • What should I look for in a good ASIC Agent?

  • A good ASIC Agent should have a thorough understanding of corporate law and ASIC compliance requirements, a track record of reliability and professionalism, and excellent communication skills to ensure you are always updated and informed about your compliance status.

  • How do I change my ASIC Agent?

  • To change your ASIC Agent, you need to notify ASIC through an online form or paper form, indicating the cessation of your current agent and the appointment of a new one. It is essential to ensure that your new agent is registered and capable of handling your company’s specific needs.

  • What are the consequences of having outdated ASIC records?

  • Outdated ASIC records can lead to significant compliance issues and potential legal complications for a business. Misrepresentations about the company's current state can result in incorrect decisions by stakeholders, increased regulatory scrutiny, and difficulties in entering into contracts or securing financing. Regularly updating these records is crucial to maintain transparency and compliance.

  • How can an accountant help in streamlining the process of ASIC compliance for a business?

  • Accountants play a vital role in streamlining ASIC compliance by keeping up-to-date with regulatory changes, ensuring that all filings, such as annual returns and any changes in company details, are accurate and submitted on time. This proactive management helps prevent compliance issues and keeps the business in good standing.

  • What is a solvency resolution?

  • A solvency resolution is a declaration made by the directors of a company, stating that they believe the company is solvent—meaning it can meet its debts as and when they fall due. This resolution must be passed each year within two months after the annual review date and is essential for affirming the company’s financial health.

  • What is a registered office?

  • A registered office is the official address of a company where communications and notices to the company are addressed. It must be within Australia and cannot be a post office box. This address is used by ASIC and other entities to send official correspondence.

  • Can an ASIC Agent act as my company’s registered office?

  • Yes, an ASIC Agent can act as the registered office for your company. This is often beneficial as it ensures that all statutory correspondence is immediately handled by professionals who are well-versed in compliance matters, thereby reducing the risk of missed deadlines or non-compliance.

  • What should I do if I think my company is insolvent?

  • If you suspect that your company is insolvent, it's crucial to act promptly to avoid the risk of wrongful trading. Consult with a financial advisor or insolvency practitioner immediately to assess your situation and explore options such as restructuring, refinancing, or, if necessary, formal insolvency procedures. Continuing to trade while insolvent can lead to serious legal consequences.

  • How often do I need to update my company details with ASIC, and what details need to be updated?

  • You must update your company details with ASIC whenever there are changes to key information such as business address, directors, shareholders, share structure, or the registered office. These updates should be made within 28 days of any change to avoid penalties for non-compliance. Regular updates ensure that your company remains compliant with ASIC's regulations and that all correspondence and legal documents are correctly directed.
