ASIC - Company Dataset

Update 5 April 2018 - Changes to Company data set

Beginning from the April 2018 dataset update, data for reserved names will no longer be included in the Company dataset.

The associated changes will allow the following improvements:

  • Enable monthly updates to occur on the first or second day each month
  • Make transition to weekly and daily updates easier in the future
  • Remove confusion around duplicate names with different ACN's appearing in the dataset

We aim to add a reserved names dataset to data.gov.au during 2018. If you require information about Reserved Names the register can be searched via ASIC-Connect.

You can also contact ASIC about Reserved Name data via email on Access.Request@asic.gov.au
