Corporate & Secretarial

The regulatory requirements in Australia can be extensive. This creates a significant overhead on companies to remain compliant. Furthermore the obligations on companies are growing and becoming more complex. We advise on compliance with regulatory authorities including the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC), Australian Transaction and Reports Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) the Australian Prudential Regulator (APRA).

Clients include those wishing to outsource their company secretarial functions, foreign companies with Australian subsidiaries wishing to ensure compliance with Australian law, foreign companies requiring local agents for their Australian branches and smaller public companies that require a cost effective way to remain compliant.
