To register the business name, I think the ASIC form will ask you to enter your ABN (or, confirm you’ve applied for the ABN) so usually you would get your ABN first and then register the business name. Then, once registered if you looked at either the ABN, your name or business name on the relevant databases you’d ultimately see each the ABN, your name and business name appearing.

If you register a business name before the ABN then the business name/your name couldn’t appear on the ABN database, but would still appear on the business name database and then once you got your ABN they’d link up and you’d see the details at both places.

Hope that helps?
