Hints and tips

  • This register is for charities or incorporated associations only. You can also search for businesses and individuals in industries we license.
  • The register may generate an error message in some web browsers. If so, please contact us with your enquiry.
  • The search function will insert an automatic wildcard at the beginning and end of your search term. For example, "ice" will return "service", "police", "I.C.E.R.C", and many other combinations.
  • Try to provide as much of the main name as possible.
    You may need to check your spelling or be specific with your search terms. For example, you could try "Basketball" for "Basketball Club of Beaudesert".
