    Hi I have an issue where

    the old owner of my small business, has an “”ïnitialized” version of the current small business name.

    eg. current is XJM Goods (which was transferred, but he has not cancelled the Abn version of it. “X.J.M. Goods.

    It is still in “äctive mode” on the abn look up.

    He is also overseas (apparently)

    What control do I have to get this removed from the abn look up?

    the abn was related to the business at some point.

    This must be very frustrating for you.
    However, (a) Contact ASIC direct and get the right information. Be prepared to be on hold on the phone for a while.
    or (b) Ask your accountant – as long as they are one that deals with ASIC – to contact ASIC for you and fix it. They will charge you a fee to do this but they have direct access to ASIC which we do not.

    All the best.
