When a company or officeholder officer changes their address, they'll need to notify ASIC by completing a Form 484 - Changes to company details.
To avoid any fees or penalties, this form should be lodged within 28 days of the change occurring.
You can lodge Form 484 to make changes to the following address types:
- Registered office – the address ASIC send your company correspondence to. This address can be the same as company's principal place of business, but it can't be a PO box.
- Principal place of business – the main address where you conduct business. This address can't be a PO box.
- Officeholder or Member residential address – When appointing a director, alternate director, secretary or issuing shares to a member, you need to provide ASIC their residential address. If this address changes, ASIC must also be notified. The address can't be a PO box.
To get started, select your client from My List and click Corporate admin on the top-menu bar. Click Manage an entity on the top-right of the screen and choose Notify of company changes. The Notification of company changes - Form 484 screen appears.

|UI Text Box|
You can select more than one type of address to apply the change to.
For example, if the new address is the same for the principal place of business and registered office, select both registered office address and principal place of business. The registered office address and principal place of business will be updated to the new address.
To notify of another address change, click + Change another address. You only need to do this if the address is different.
- If the address is shared across multiple companies, officers or members, you'll be asked if you want to update the address for those entities. Select the clients you also want to update to create a 484 form for each entity.
- Continue to complete each section of the form as required. Once form is complete click Send for Signing.
