Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is the business name registry. It is not the registration QGIS. An organization must register the business name which is separate from the legal registration found in ABN.
ASIC lookup: https://connectonline.asic.gov.au/RegistrySearch/faces/landing/SearchRegisters.jspx
Note: ASIC is not used for Registration QGIS. Can be used for physical existence, operational existence and DBA/Tradename registration
If ASIC is used for DBA/tradename verification:
Note: The ASIC document must be uploaded into AVS as Other QGIS if a DBA/Tradename is on the certificate.
Dunn and Bradstreet manual search is not recommended. Use the AVS automated search for better results.
Very difficult and expensive for a business to be listed in Dunn and Bradstreet. Not recommended to instruct customer to update Dunn and Bradstreet database.
