We are working on upgrading our websites and despite our best endeavours have experienced census type calamities for almost a week now. Our apologies, we hope to have all problems resolved by Monday August 15th.

Deregistered Companies - (updated constantly)


The deregistration (as distinct from the delisting) of a company is the final act.

The company is removed from the official records as a registered company. It no longer exists. Shares have no value.

Deregistration, a Capital Gains Tax event

Deregistration is recognized as a Capital Gains Tax Event and when it happens, shareholders can crystallise a capital loss for tax purposes (providing of course the shares were acquired on or after 20 September 1985, which is when capital gains tax was first introduced). The claim for a capital loss does not need to be substantiated with documentation, shareholders just need to know the company is deregistered.

Shareholders should also be aware that an administrator's or liquidator's declaration (that there will be no distribution to shareholders) is often made before deregistration. If you choose to make the capital loss in the income year the administrator or liquidator declares the shares worthless, the loss can't of course be claimed again when the company is deregistered!!  

If you don’t choose to make the capital loss in the income year the administrator or liquidator declares the shares worthless, you won’t make a capital loss until the shares are disposed of or the company is deregistered. We may be able to assist with acquisition of your shares to crystallise a loss, see our "Sell Your Worthless Shares" webpage


 Finding your company

If your company has been deregistered there are three ways of finding it:

  • Search by code (see box above right)
  • Search by company name (see box above left)
  • Click on the appropriate letter of the alphabet (see the alphabet index above)

If you are unable to find your company or the information is incomplete or incomprehensible we recommend you send us a message and we will try to assist.

Please bear in mind we are unable to help with private companies, public companies that have never been listed or with companies domiciled outside Australia or New Zealand. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission on 1300 300 630 or the NZ Companies Office on 0508 266 726 may be able to assist you with other companies.


List of all deregistered companies

We carry the details of about 800 deregistered companies and update the list in March of each year (because of its relevance for tax purposes). You can click on the button below to see a list of deregistered companies:

Thank you for the wonderful service you provide through your website. I've had the pleasure of selling a parcel of shares: easy, efficient, and very cost-effective. And I especially like the super-easy way your site allows me to chase up companies' various name changes, and so remain up-to-date.
