Nationwide Bookkeeping & Accountants Services can represent your Company with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC).
We will act on your behalf with ASIC and update your Company details as required throughout the year.
Prior to the anniversary of the Company, the ASIC will send through your Annual Review and invoice. We will send this to you for review and payment.
If changes are required, we will prepare the required documentation to be lodged with ASIC and minutes of meetings, which, after signing, we store on your Corporate Register assuming we are engaged to maintain it on your behalf.
We can also maintain your Trust Register and prepare your meeting minutes as required throughout the year.
Registered agents are usually members of specific Industry Associations that recognise the qualifications of these individuals and firms. Often, they will be a Tax Agent or Solicitor.
ASIC Registered Agents act as intermediaries between officeholders of Australian companies and ASIC to help companies meet their lodgement obligations more efficiently. As the officeholders of an Australian company are ultimately responsible for the companies compliance, the benefits of using a Registered Agent is that as they handle a large volume of companies regularly they are more familiar with the requirements companies need to meet under the Corporations Act 2001 (the Act).
Registered Agents enable the companies they represent to meet compliance requirements by:
Online lodgements of transactions performed by ASIC Registered Agents reduce late lodgement penalties, fraudulent activity (by having an online authentication process) and also offer an increased convenience for those who wish to lodge documents for immediate company updates when company details are required for other purposes.
Finally, ASIC Registered Agents will usually offer their service to act as Registered Office of a company when representing as a Registered Agent. ASIC’s requirement to be a nominated Registered Office is that the address, if not occupied by the company, must have written consent to use the premises as its Registered Office. It must also be open between the nominated hours Monday to Friday stipulated with ASIC. The Registered Office must also retain up to date company register records and receive correspondence for and on behalf of the company represented and forward same onto the company officeholders when and as received.
When we talk Administration Services, we are talking about working with you and your business to provide the support you need to keep on top of your day to day administration (remotely). We work with a variety of service providers to help achieve this from professional organisers to virtual assistants.
On the financial management side of things, we will keep your data entry up to date and in ship shape (as long as you follow our simple instructions to enable us to do so) and organise your digital filing cabinet to aid us in this process.
We can also work with you to develop an overall wireframe for how your business operates aka your digital filing cabinet. Additionally, if your inboxes are overwhelming and your digital filing cabinet is a mess, we can arrange for this to be managed on your behalf. We want you to live a clutter free life, get your systems pristine and take a weight off your shoulders.
Furthermore, if your general administration duties or basic marketing routines need a kickstart, update or general assistance, we can sort this out too!
We understand that time = money. The more time you can spend working on your business, winning your contracts and delivering your services, the more you can earn which in turn enables you to be able to do more of the things you enjoy be it working, having holidays, spending time with family, drag racing or canoeing.
