Can I correct my company name/details after the company is registered?

Under some circumstances you may be able too. You can lodge a Form 492 ‘Request for Correction’ with ASIC if a minor mistake has been made in the company application. These errors most commonly include a typographical error, such as a space or full stop to be added or omitted, or letters that are transposed or omitted in a word. This form must be lodged strictly within 24 hours of company registration.

To lodge a Form 492 you must:

  1. Download a Form 492 ‘Request for correction’ which can be found here:
  2. Print this form off
  3. Fill out the form as required
  4. Scan the filled out form
  5. Email the filled out form to ecr.support@asic.gov.au within the next 24 hours (sooner is better rather than later)
  6. In the email the company director needs to write a paragraph stating what needs to be corrected in the company application. State the company’s ACN as well as the company’s name and a contact number.
