Some organisations, like incorporated associations, can only operate in their 'home' state or territory. By becoming a registered Australian body, these organisations can operate in all states and territories within Australia.

Registrable Australian bodies are registered and regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). Visit the ASIC website for information about becoming a registrable Australian body.

Charities that are registered Australian bodies have obligations to notify ASIC or the ACNC of certain changes to the charity. See our FAQs: Registrable Australian bodies and the ACNC for more information.
