Transfer number (business names)

ASIC cannot transfer a business name. However, in cancelling a business name, a request can be made by the business name holder or their agent, for a 'consent to transfer number'. This number is provided by the business name holder, to the new proposed business name holder, who must then provide the number to ASIC when applying to register the name. See: Consent to transfer number.
