Resident Director Services


Australian law requires that private companies set up in Australia must have at least one director that lives here. For public companies the requirement is two resident directors (plus any company secretaries).

This can be difficult if you’re a foreign company with little or no local network.

Smart Wealth Advisors can act as resident director for foreign companies that wish to set up subsidiaries in Australia. We can complete a range of activities that fall under the resident director’s responsibilities, such as signing documents for lodgement with regulatory authorities; acting as the shareholders’ authorised representative; and liaising with regulatory authorities and financial institutions.

Smart Wealth Advisors can help with:

Company set-up to meet regulatory requirements
Implementation of accounting systems and processes
Accounting services
Tax advisory
Performing local director responsibilities
