Anyone who owns a domain name or business name may have had a letter inviting them to renew their domain name at an inflated price. These letters may come through either mail or email. and although they look official, they most likely are not.
The business name renewal letters while looking official, are not from ASIC themselves. The letters may instruct you to renew your Business name through their website and will often charge $99 to do so. A standard Business name renewal is only around $35.
The domain name renewal letters will also look official but most likely aren’t either (they often look very similar to the business name renewal letters). They will also offer renewal at an inflated price! The safest option will always be to contact your domain name provider to renew your domain name.
