    As of the 28th of May, 2012, the process for registering business names within Australia has changed considerably. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) have consolidated various state registrations services into one to create the new National Business Names Registration Service. This eliminates the need for business owners to register their business names separately in each state.

    More information here: http://www.asic.gov.au/business-names
    Business name services (including registration): http://www.asic.gov.au/asic/ASIC.NSF/byHeadline/Business%20names%20services

    Other than this, do I need to update anything else in my “startup guide” below, (or anything new I should add?)

    Hi Leisa,

    Looking at the link for your Start up Guide – it seems all you need to do is remove reference to the Business Name Registration being through your state/territory and just replace it with a link to http://www.asic.gov.au website.

    If you have other materials that go into further detail about the business name registration system (versus simply providing handy links for your visitors) you might want to read through this other thread, which discusses an important difference between old & new system.

    There are definitely some differences between the old “state” registration and this new system but not sure how much info you are after? I’ve written a few posts at my blog that discuss the requirements/differences if they’re of interest? You can read them here.

    Hope this helps :)

    PS – Your start up guide/list doesn’t mention trademarks, or intellectual property. A new business owner should be aware that chosen brands/names/logos etc could infringe a trademark etc- feel free to link to my site if you like ;) – the govt. department site is http://www.ipaustralia.gov.au.
