Company Type

Type of company*

Proprietary companies

Proprietary companies must have at least one shareholder but no more than 50 non-employee shareholders. These are the company owners. It must have at least one director. While it’s not necessary, you may also choose to have a company secretary. While there must be a registered office, the proprietary company doesn’t have to open it to the public.

Public companies

A public company must also have at least one shareholder, but there’s no upper limit to how many shareholders it can have. It’s common for a company to shift from being proprietary to public because it has more than 50 shareholders. Most companies choose to become a small unlisted public company in that situation. A public company must have at least three directors, two of which must be ordinarily resident in Australia. It also needs at least one company secretary and a registered office that is available to the public during certain hours.

Parties

A company must have at least one Australian director. In addition to this, a company can choose to have a company secretary (but a secretary is not compulsory). Note that having a company secretary can make it easier to endorse contracts with some organisations. The public officer is the person formally responsible under tax law for ensuring the company complies with all relevant tax legislation (and every company must have one). Please answer the following questions regarding the initial company directors, secretary and public officer.

Note: Please add Directors first, then all other parties.


Director Identification Number

New company directors are required by law to apply for a director identification number (director ID) before being appointed. Penalties of up to $13,000 apply for processing without a Director's ID or failing to apply for one when directed by the Registrar to do so.

What is a Director Identification Number?

The Director Identification Number (Director ID) is a 15 digit unique identifier that stays with a director for life in helping to prevent the use of false or fraudulent director identities with the new registry services of the ABRS. This will make it easier to trace director relationships across companies and help identify and eliminate involvement in illegal activity such as illegal phoenix activity.

Warning: We cannot lodge this new Company Incorporation with ASIC unless we have your Director's ID.

 Party No. 1 
Is this party and individual or entity?*

Note: Please be reminded that an Entity (e.g. Company or Trust) can only be a shareholder of a company. It cannot be a Director, Secretary or Public Officer of another company. You will need to select "Individual" for these roles.

SINGLE TOUCH PAYROLL (STP)
The ATO requires employers to lodge payroll through a single touch payroll (STP) compatible software. 
Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a new way of reporting tax and superannuation information to the ATO. Using an STP-enabled software, you'll send your employees' salary and wage, tax withheld and super information to the ATO each time you pay your employees. This means: you'll report to the ATO each time you pay your employees.

Do you need assistance with setting up Single Touch Payroll (STP)?*
 Workers Compensation / WorkCover Insurance


For most businesses in Australia, purchasing workers’ compensation insurance to cover their employees in case of work-related injury, disease or death is compulsory.

Workers compensation includes payments to employees to cover their:

  • wages while they're not fit for work
  • medical expenses and rehabilitation.

Employers in each state or territory have to take out workers compensation insurance to cover themselves and their employees. Workers compensation is governed by individual states and territories, so please contact the workers' compensation regulator in your state or territory for further details: Fair Work Australia (opens a new window)

At Factor1, we are able to help you apply for your Workers Compensation Insurance, which will cost an additional $100+ GST.
