Most of our online services allow you to upload your supporting documents at the time you complete a task or transaction. Where a particular online service doesn't exist — for example, filing a copy of a High Court Order to restore your company on the Register — you may be asked to use our Lodge other documents service instead.
Before you use this service
Before you use our Lodge other documents service, check that the document you want to upload isn't covered by an existing online service.
If an online service already exists — for example, filing a director's consent form — your request will be rejected with an alert to use the correct service.
Who can use this service
The Lodge other documents service can be used by a shareholder, director or other authorised person or organisation acting on behalf of a company.
What file types and sizes we accept
Our Lodge other documents service accepts only some file types, and in most cases the files must have a combined size of less than 50MB.
Authority to lodge other documents
To use the Lodge other documents service, you must have:
- a RealMe® login
- an online services account with Companies Register.
