What information do you need to order a Change to Sole Director Company through Cleardocs?

Our checklist outlines all the information you require.

Why change a company to a sole director structure?

In 1995 the Corporations Act was changed to allow single member and director companies to operate - potentially simplifying administration and liability.

To operate under this change the company will need to adopt a new constitution. For some clients, changing to a sole director structure may also improve their right to receive government benefits.

Notifying ASIC of the changes

After you receive your Cleardocs package, you need to record the change to directors, and any change in shares holdings by making changes on the ASIC register online. You will need to firstly register for online services with ASIC using the company's corporate key, then log in to ASIC via https://asic.gov.au/for-business/changes-to-your-company/.
