The Companies Act 1993 allows for companies to amalgamate. After amalgamation, the amalgamated company may wish to deal with estates or interests that are still registered in the name of an amalgamating company.
This guideline provides guidance as to how the amalgamated company may deal with registered estates or interests that are still registered in the name of an amalgamating company. The guideline outlines:
- the 2 methods by which an amalgamated company may deal with registered estates or interests in land
- the requirements when preparing and then registering a transmission application following amalgamation of companies
- how such an amalgamation can be recognised without it having to be formally recorded on the register or record of title.
Approval by the RGL, as specified in section 1.5.1 of the guideline, is only necessary for applications being lodged by manual dealing. Pre-approval is not necessary when lodging applications via e-dealing.
