Some information for sole traders, already trading under a registered business name, who decide to register a company ...

Incorporator has been used by many thousands of sole traders, who have decided (very loosely speaking) to "incorporate their business" or "incorporate themselves". Let's take the following illustrative and typical (albeit fictitious) example: John Smith has been running a lawn mowing business in NSW under the business name "Smithies Lawn Mowing". And because that business name is different from John's own name, John registered the business name at NSW Fair Trading, and was allocated the NSW registered business number BN17333877. He also registered, via, for an Australia-wide ABN (Australian Business Number) and for GST registration. Then, after a couple of years trading, John's accountant advises him that given that his sales have increased so much, and bearing in mind that he currently has potentially unlimited liability in relation to his business, that John should "incorporate his business".

So John goes to, clicks its START button and begins answering its questions. He soon is asked what name he wants to call the company and he specifies Smithies Lawn Mowing Pty Ltd. He then is asked whether he happens to have already reserved the proposed company name at ASIC, and he answers No. He then is asked whether the proposed company name (excluding the "end bits", Pty Ltd) is identical to an existing registered business name, and he answers Yes. He then is asked whether he owns that registered business name and he again answers Yes. He then is asked whether he registered the business name before 28 May 2012 and he again answers Yes. He then is asked to quote the state of registration and the registration number and he answers NSW BN17333876. John then finalises the process by going on to register the company online (at a cost of A$999) and is allocated the nine digit ACN 336 776 554.

John then notifies ASIC (who, on 28 May 2012 took over from NSW Fair Trading - and from all the other equivalent authorites in the other states and teritories - the administration of business name registration) that he is no longer trading under the name Smithies Lawn Mowing, and that Smithies Lawn Mowing Pty Ltd is now trading under the name Smithies Lawn Mowing*. (*And, having done so, the company may trade under its full name Smithies Lawn Mowing Pty Ltd, and/or its shortened registered business name, Smithies Lawn Mowing, and/or as Smithies Lawn Mowing Pty Ltd trading as Smithies Lawn Mowing.) Secondly, John opens a bank account for the new company at Westpac. Thirdly, he gets the new company registration, Smithies Lawn Mowing Pty Ltd, at no cost, to apply online at for an ABN, a TFN and for GST registration. And finally, at, he cancels the old/previous ABN (and GST registration) for himself as a sole trader.
