Franchise Disclosure Register

The Franchise Disclosure Register gives prospective franchise buyers, current franchisees and professional advisers access to information that is important to know when making business decisions.

This Register is hosted by the Australian Government. All franchise content on the Register is published by franchisors and not by the Australian Government.


Create a new franchise profile, confirm your information is current, create a new version or update an existing franchise profile on the Register using your Digital Identity.

Digital Identity is a safe, secure and convenient way to prove and reuse your identity online. Further information about creating your Digital Identity can be found here: How to create your Digital Identity | Digital Identity

Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) is an authorisation service that allows you to act on behalf of an entity online when linked with your Digital Identity, like myGovID.

If you are experiencing issues with your Digital Identity or RAM, you can contact myGovID or RAM for support.
