As you no longer need to have a company name or business name to register
.au domain names, there seems little point in worrying about whether the
contents of the "Registrant" field exactly match a company or business name
issued by ASIC or State governments.  Over time, more registrations will be
based on other criteria, such as "close and substantial connection", etc.

  Hi.

Has anyone developed an efficient way of verifying an Australian business
name/number for domain registration purposes - and wants to share the
approach?

Letting the business number checksum and ABR/ASIC parsing aside, there are
different approaches in Business Name string matching - regex, oliver,
levenshtein, soundex, etc... however all need tweaking to confidently do a
best-effort match on the business name people type in an application form
and the actual registered legal name of a respective business.

As a side issue - shouldn't the business name stored at AusRegistry be 100%
identical with the name returned from the government registries?  The names
are presumably validated and matching their associated business number,
however the exact name integrity is not enforced.

Any thoughts?


Kind regards,
