Company Registration - Consent Forms

This article will explain the relevance and use of the pre-registration consent form templates that have been made available to you as part of the company registration process. 

Overview

Before registering a company with ASIC, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. One of these is that there is a legal requirement upon the applicant to ensure that written consent is obtained from the people that will fill the following roles:

  • director; 
  • secretary;
  • public officer;
  • member/s.

The completed/signed consent forms demonstrates the individual's consent to act in the relevant role upon the company's registration.

Also, if the company will not occupy the premises at the address of its registered address, then it is also a requirement to attain the occupier's written consent to the company's use of those premises as its registered address. 

As part of our company registration document form, NowInfinity has now added a new first tab titled "Pre-registration consents". For more information on this, click here
