Through the advocacy of our professional services network of leading accounting and legal firms, we represent over 100 international enterprises by acting as the resident nominee director. A company residing in Australia and New Zealand must have at least one (1) resident director to bestow the personal responsibility of statutory and financial obligations for the company. As a resident, we can act as your:
- Local Agent
- Resident Director & Company Secretary
- Public Officer
Confidentiality and privacy guarantee
Your director has access to vital and important information. We take your confidentiality as a top priority and guarantee to keep your information private from employees and the public. At appointment as your resident director or local agent, we will execute the appropriate engagement documents to ensure your confidentiality and privacy.
Your company’s duty to keep records
We work closely with your preferred accounting firm to ensure the compliance records of the company are complete and accurate when filing with Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) and Australian Taxation Office (ATO) through the adoption of appropriate accounting policies, procedures and implementation of appropriate controls. You can keep the company bookkeeping in-house; serviced by your head office team or outsource to your accountant’s. For local online accounting software, we recommend QuickBooks, MYOB and Xero.
Directors are important gatekeepers in the financial system and particularly in the provision of meaningful and useful information and through timely financial reporting to enable directors to make informed business decisions. Directors must be skilled to prevent insolvent trading and always act in good faith and not for personal gain. A resident director can be held personally responsible for the debts and liabilities of the company and for this reason will request periodic updates about the performance of the company.
Nominee director obligations
Your company must lodge financial reports with ASIC and ATO. We execute your company documents, fulfil regulatory requirements and maintain proper compliance in collaboration with your preferred accountants advisors. As your resident director, we can also act as your public officer to meet ATO requirements.
Comprehensive director engagement
We can streamline the incorporation of your new Australian or ew Zealand company and also establish a bank account for the company within several days. Our comprehensive engagement process will give you the assurance that the continuity of the company is always in your control. Our clients are public companies, large multinationals and privately held businesses. We represent clients from the USA, Canada, England, China, Netherlands, Singapore, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, Italy and France.
