our accountant sent us to a solicitor…..

I would be worried if your accountant could not assist you with incorporating a company. Business Structures are what we do, accountants are not just tax accountants.

You can do it yourself, but the fees you pay to an accountant to assist you with setting up is not just for the Certificate from ASIC, a good advisor will talk you through your obligations as a director, your liability (irrespective of a pty ltd you do have risks) and also if registering a company is the best option for your circumstances.

I would be making this recommendation even if I was not an accountant.

A lawyer is required if you are planning of going into business with an unrelated party.
