Other laws impacting business names

The Business Names Registration Act 2011 outlines the rules for registration of a business name. However, the use of industry and professional terms in general (not just within a business name) is also often limited by other laws. These laws may be specific to the state or territory in which you intend to operate your business. For example, if your proposed business name includes words which indicate you are licensed in a certain trade or profession when you do not hold such a licence, you may breach the law. Penalties can include fines and in some instances, imprisonment. You should consider the laws applicable to your industry or profession before you register a business name. The information below sets out examples where this may be the case: Word or Term Limited by State or Territory Law Description
Architect
In each state and territory of Australia it is a legal requirement that any person using the title ‘architect’ must be registered with the Architects’ Board in that jurisdiction.
Builder
In each state and territory there are restrictions around using the title of 'builder' and/or holding yourself out to be a licensed builder.
Registered Professional Engineer
There are penalties associated with falsely claiming to be a builder when you are not licensed or registered. Each state or territory has an individual licensing authority that regulates the building profession. In Queensland, a person who is not a registered professional engineer must not use the title ‘registered professional engineer'.
Surveyor
In some states, you must not use the title 'licensed surveyor' without being registered under the relevant Act.
Veterinarian
Every state and territory in Australia has a Veterinary Practice Act, and each has a Veterinary Registration Board. The terms veterinary surgeon, veterinary practitioner, veterinarian, vet, animal doctor or any derivative of these terms should not be used by anyone other than a registered veterinarian. All states have penalties for persons who falsely represent themselves as veterinarians.
When starting and running a business you are responsible to ensure you have the correct licences and registrations. If you register a business name that could breach another law, the responsible body may advise you that you cannot use your registered business name and/or take action against you.
Information Brokers will not refund the cost of registering the business name in these circumstances.
Information Brokers will not refund monies if you change your mind or don't finalise the business name application process.
Business names refund policy
When a client commences the application to register a business name they do so in the knowledge that no refunds are given unless the client cannot get the business name they have applied for notice is given that not all names are available even though the business name search tool indicated availability at the time of application. If a refund is approved the client agrees to a deduction of a order processing fee which is half the registration fee. A client who continues a business name application despite the fact the search tools say the name is not available is not entitled to a refund.
Applicant Declarations
The applicant declares that the following statements are true to confirm eligibility to register a business name. If any of these declarations are untrue your application will be scrutinized by ASIC to determine whether you are eligible under the Business Names Registration Act 2011. If you are not the applicant you must be authorized by the applicant/company to make these declarations on their behalf. To the best of my knowledge, the information supplied in this application is complete and accurate (it is an offence to provide false or misleading information to ASIC). submit this application for lodgment on behalf of the applicant/company under the terms and conditions of the ASIC Electronic Lodgment Protocol; and make each of the above declarations on behalf of the applicant/company after making all due and proper enquiries. Declaration by applicant of eligibility to hold a business name: I agree to the following: I am not disqualified from managing corporations under section 206B(1) of the Corporations Act 2001; and Within the last 5 years I have not been: convicted of, or released from prison after being convicted of, and serving a term of imprisonment for, any of the criminal offences referred to in section 32(1)(c) or (d) of the Business Names Registration Act 2011.
