What is a member?
A member of a company must be a person (e.g. John Citizen), a body corporate (e.g. XYZ Company Pty Ltd), or a body politic (e.g. State of Queensland). A member is an entity that can own property, sue or be sued. A business name is not a legal entity and therefore cannot be a member. Estates and trusts cannot hold shares in their own right – they must nominate an executor or a trustee.
