Bartley Partners is an authorised Adelaide ASIC agent so we can assist you with all manner of issues, both minor or major. We are also licensed with ASIC under RG146 to be able to provide specialist Self Managed Super Fund SMSF advice.
ASIC is the Australian corporate regulator which is responsible for the creation and maintenance of corporations, as well as monitoring the legal compliance of companies and their directors. ASIC is in the media most frequently for pursuing directors for conduct such as insolvent trading, unlicensed activities, and insider trading.
For small businesses, the general contact you will have with ASIC will be:
- Registering a company, for which ASIC charges $488. It is worth noting there will also be legal and accounting fees, and you can expect to pay around $1100 for a good quality, comprehensive company registration. There are always cheap alternatives available online, which will cost you a lot less, but like most things in life, you get what you pay for.
- Annual review fees of $263 per year by ASIC to maintain your company on the corporate register. It’s worth noting that ASIC charges heavy penalties which it will also never waive, so ensure this is paid on time to avoid non-deductible fines.
- Ensuring you maintain a registered office for the business. We provide a registered office service for our clients who operate home-based businesses and cannot guarantee opening times.
