    You must have a physical presence to get a .com.au domain but there is one way round this. Hire a Virtual Office and use that as the physical address for your business in Australia then you qualify for a .com.au domain.

    Its not so easy

    you need to register an Oz company and then buy domains that are only associated to that company business.

    No you don't Doug.

    Australian domain name registration requirements for registering your domain name with Domain Hosting Shop :: domainhostingshop.com.au

    a foreign company licensed to trade in Australia; or trading under a registered business name in any Australian State or Territory

    Melbourne IT just register your business as having trading connections in Australia to entitle you to an Australian domain name. That's why I said use a VPO as that constitutes the physical presence.

    Yes.

    Doing Business In Australia Some advice.

    Types of Company
    There are many different ways in which investors can conduct business in Australia, including corporations, branch offices, subsidiaries, trusts, joint ventures and partnerships. However, for international investors, the most appropriate vehicles are usually Australian subsidiary companies or Australian branch offices. Although in terms of taxation there is not a great deal to choose between the two (both are subject to the standard corporate tax rate), in practice, most foreign companies choose to operate through a locally established subsidiary company, as this has the added benefits of limited liability and separate legal status. Franked dividends from an Australian subsidiary are also not subject to withholding tax when paid to the foreign parent company. A foreign company that intends to do business in Australia must register with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), in order to do so.

    Doug will you be able to share the costs of setting up the company there (if possible excl. the office costs, in case its not a "P.O. Box" office)

    Re: Register Au Domains ?

    Hi,

    I'm interested in buying domains in Oz. What are the costs of:

    1) Getting licensed to trade in Australia?
    2) Hiring a Virtual Office which can used as the physical address for your business in Australia, so you qualify for a .com.au domain?

    thanks
