Starting a company
When you register a company, you are creating an entity that has its own legal obligations. As an officeholder, you need to be aware of anything that is required of you under the law.
If you've decided that a company is right for you, find out how to start a company and the steps you need to register.
A company can operate under a constitution, replaceable rules, or a combination of both. See constitution and replaceable rules for information about the differences and what your obligations are.
A company's officeholders are its directors and secretaries. Officeholders are responsible for ensuring a company meets its legal obligations. Depending on the type of company, there's a legal need to have a minimum number of officeholders.
