    I'm looking at getting a share account, and I notice they have Company/Individual Citizen or "Registered Body" as some of the options. If you have an ABN (business), does that mean an ABN is classified as a Registered Body? Just a bit confused.

    According to the Corporations Act, a registrable Australian body is a body corporate which has been formed or incorporated in Australia and includes exempt public authorities, corporations sole, foreign companies, financial institutions and associations registered under a state law. I don't believe a business with an ABN would be considered a registered body.
