8. Business Name registration process – No guarantee of your results
Any Business Name availability checks conducted using the Website’s Registration Form are dependent on the ASIC business name register (ASIC Register). We will not be held responsible if the ASIC Register system experiences technical problems, including maintenance or downtime, or for omissions or errors in the ASIC Register.
If the Business Name application form availability check reveals your Business Name is not available, your application for that Business Name will be terminated. If for any reason the ASIC Register is unavailable, and you still want to proceed, we can manually submit your Business Name application.
In the event of a manual application, we are unable to check the availability of your chosen Business Name using the ASIC Register. If your Business Name is not available, you can decide whether to:
- Select an alternative business name; or
- Receive a full application fee refund from us, minus the Administration Charge.
- If we notify you that your Business Name is not available, and you do not request a different business name within 10 days of this notification, we will issue the refund as detailed above.
- Submitting a Business Name application via the Website does not guarantee successful registration of the Business Name. We are unable to provide any guarantees regarding the registration of your Business Name.
- If ASIC needs to manually review your Business Name, the registration of your Business Name may be delayed, or may not be successful.
- The ASIC Register Business Name availability check is conducted on the date we receive your Business Name application.
- We endeavor to file your Business Name application with ASIC as soon as possible after we receive your application. We will notify you if your desired Business Name is not available when we submit your Business Name application, in order that you can choose an alternative Business Name. We will not be held liable for any costs, damage or direct or indirect losses incurred by you due as a result of your Business Name’s unavailability for registration.
- You recognize that registering a Business Name does not stop third parties registering a similar trade mark, business or company name, or using a similar name as an unregistered trade mark.
- If, for any reason, ASIC rejects or queries your Business Name application, we will liaise with ASIC on your behalf in an attempt to resolve problems that have arisen with your application. We will notify you of the reasons your application failed, and will discuss possible solutions with you wherever possible.
- If ASIC must manually review your application, we may require further evidence from you that supports your right to use certain terms. We will notify you of our requirements, and request you provide all requested information within a specified time period. If you fail to comply, we may discontinue your Business Name application.
- If you wish to seek a review of an ASIC decision, you must lodge an objection within 28 days of the date of the ASIC notice.
- We will act on your behalf and seek to overcome any objections, but cannot make any guarantees of success. In the event that your objection is unsuccessful, your Business Name application will be canceled, and your application fee refunded in full.
