Name change of director after marriage

My client forgot to change her name to her married name with ASIC - do we just do a 484 and she will incur a fine as it is well over 28 days?

Thanks

Hi Rachel,
A 484 updates it yes, however discuss with your director or manager as to the effective date to use.

Technically it should be the date she changed it but every office I have worked in has a different policy about what the effective date to use in these situations. Some prefer to make the effective date the day she notified the firm of the change.

Remind the client that if she hasn’t already done so she will need to update her Director ID Number details too and with the ATO.
