Why do we need to register a business name?

You need to register a business name if you conduct business or trade within Australia and you are not trading under your own entity name.

You do not need to register a business name if the entity is, for example:

  • an individual and the business name is the individual’s name (their first name and surname)
  • a registered company and the business name is the company’s name, or
  • a partnership and the business name consists of all of the partners’ names.

If you would like to order a new business name, please complete our order form and email it through to us at info@docscentre.com.au.
