My client wants to register a company and act as director/secretary, but does not want to provide their residential address. Is there a way to suppress my client's address when registering a company?

Company directors and secretaries are required to give ASIC details of their usual residential address on various forms and applications. Address details form part of ASIC's public database and will be available to the public. In certain circumstances, it is possible to apply to ASIC for approval to have your usual residential address suppressed on their public database and, in its place, to use an alternative addres.

There is more information about suppressing an address on ASIC's website.

If your client has already been granted an address suppression and you now want to register a company for them, please list their approved alternative address in the form and provide Special Instructions to this effect (including the suppression code provided and email us the approval letter from ASIC).
