The head company's public officer – or the public officer of the former head company if it has ceased to exist – as listed in the Australian Business Register (ABR), must notify us within 28 days of an entity joining or leaving a consolidated group.
When this occurs before we have been notified of the formation of the consolidated group, the details of the changes in membership must be given as part of the formation notice – see section B or C of the formation notice.
How to notify us

You should not notify us that a company has left the consolidated group when it goes into liquidation. A company in liquidation remains a member of a group until it is deregistered.
