The application is usually processed within 15 minutes after the name application fee is paid.

It may take between 14 days to 2 months if the application needs to be referred to another agency for approval or review. For example, if the intention of the branch of a foreign company is to carry out activities involving the setting up of a private school, the application will be referred to the Ministry of Education. Please refer to Referral Authorities for more information.

You may commence business once the entity is registered with ACRA. However, depending on the business activity, you may need to apply for licence or approval from other government agencies. Visit the GoBusiness website for more information.
