A registered Company name is a legal entity having status, rights and obligations like any person. Companies, and their names, are registered under the Corporations Law regulated by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC).
Registration of a company name may prevent the registration of the same name as a Business in other states dependant upon the type of service the Company provides.
Registration does not give you exclusive rights/ownership of the name
A Similar business name or company name can still be registered by anyone in Australia. Do not rely upon business registration or company registration to protect you......Trademark registration will!
