I have made an error on my instructions and the company has now been registered with a mistake. What can I do?

Where an error has been made on setting up a company (i.e., on the Form 201 lodged with ASIC), this can sometimes be fixed by lodging a Form 492 setting out the error, and sometimes proving to ASIC the reason for the mistake (e.g., a photocopy of the original instructions setting out the correct information). The Form 492 makes the changes as at the date of registration of the company. 

If you would like the documents to be updated to reflect the correction, please email a copy of the form 492 (before you send it to ASIC) to and we will update the register documents.

*Note: If ASIC will not correct their records with a form 492, it may be necessary to lodge a Form 484, which advises ASIC of changes to the company after it has been set up. These changes are made as at the date of the relevant change and the form 484 should be filed under ASIC Correspondence in the company register. If a change is lodged using a form 484, we will not update the company register documents.
