Exclusion of the word 'Limited' (or the abbreviations 'Ltd' or 'Ltd.') from company name

A public company limited by guarantee, being a limited company, ordinarily needs to have the word 'Limited' (or the abbreviations 'Ltd' or 'Ltd.') included in its name. However a public company limited by guarantee may be formed without the word 'Limited' (or the abbreviations 'Ltd' or 'Ltd.') in its name if:

  1. The company is registered under the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012 as the type of entity mentioned in column 1 of item 1 of the table in subsection 25-5(5) of that Act (charity).

  2. The company's constitution prohibits the company from paying fees to its directors.

  3. The company's constitution requires the directors to approve all other payments the company makes to directors.
