Error: "V097: ACN/ABN does not match with company name"

This support note applies to:

  • AO Corporate Compliance (AU)
  • AE Corporate Compliance (AU)
Article ID: 27283

In Corporate Compliance you may receive the error "V097: ACN/ABN does not match the company name" on the Validation report after lodging a form with ASIC.

This error occurs when the Corporation name in the form does not match ASIC's records exactly.

For example, if ASIC have a corporation listed as "ABC Propriety Limited" but the corporation name in Corporate Compliance is "ABC Pty Ltd", the form will return a V097 error when lodged. This error is resolved by changing the corporation name in Corporate Compliance to "ABC Propriety Limited".

To resolve this issue, compare the corporation's name in Corporate Compliance to the corporation's name in ASIC. The name in Corporate Compliance must match ASIC's records exaclty (including punctuation).
