NZAU Connect Mobile
NZAUCONNECT is a mobile application developed jointly by the New Zealand Companies Office (NZCO) and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) that allows users to do a combined search of the NZCO and ASIC Registers.
Using the app you can search over 2.5 million New Zealand and Australian companies and 1.7 million organisations included on the Australian Business Names Register, using your mobile device.
NZAUCONNECT has been designed to simplify the process of searching for companies and business names. The details you need are provided in an easy to understand format.
This easy to use mobile app is an essential addition to any user’s business application toolbox. NZAUCONNECT is free to download and free to search.

The total number of results found for each country will be displayed next to the countries name.
You can filter your search results by country by selecting either the Australia or New Zealand tabs.
By default, search results shown are for all registered and unregistered companies and business names. You have the option to view only registered companies and business names by ticking the box next to Display Registered Only.
