Sprintlaw offers smart, simple and affordable legal solutions for small businesses and startups.
What is a dual company structure?
A dual company structure involves two companies ?— a holding company that owns 100% of the operating company. It is popular among startups because your valuable assets (such as IP, cash, etc.) can be held by the holding company and can be separated from the liabilities incurred by the operating company.

This package includes everything you’ll need to set up your business under a dual company structure. You’ll receive ACN registrations with ASIC for 2 proprietary limited (PTY LTD) companies (operational company and holding company), and ABN registration for 2 businesses. You’ll also get a company register pack for each company, including the Certificate of Registration, Constitution, Share Certificates and all required resolutions and consents. In addition, we’ll draft an Intercompany IP Licence for use with your holding and operating companies.
Our Dual Company Structure package starts at $2250 + GST. It includes the ACN registration and fee for 2 companies, as well as the initial $990 ASIC fee to set up. However, please note that once you set up a company, you will need to pay ASIC an annual review fee of $267 per company. Your first payment will be required in 1 year’s time. This package does not include any tax advice.
As an online law firm, we eliminate the headaches of paying us by the hour and finding time to meet with a lawyer in person. We communicate via phone, email and cloud conferencing — whichever suits you! We know you’re busy, so we’re only a click away.
You’ll be guided through this process by our expert lawyers, who are Australian-qualified and were trained at leading law firms. They left the traditional corporate law sphere to help us make legal services better. Our lawyers specialise in technology, intellectual property, contract drafting, corporate and commercial law.
Our law firm operates completely online, which means we can help you wherever you are in Australia. We work at The Commons Central – a cool co-working space in Chippendale, Sydney – but our lawyers often work flexibly across various locations.
