Being involved in a court action can be a complex and costly process. A final notice is not a formal court action. However, it provides an opportunity for you to voluntarily negotiate a resolution with the respondent without further involvement by the court. This may save you costs, time and court appearances.
You can register an account via the online CourtSA portal to complete a Final Notice document.
You will need to have some details prepared before you can complete the P1 final notice form online. You will need to know:
- the correct names and addresses of all parties involved
- the reason for your final notice
- the amount owed
If the other party is a company, you will need to have the correct name and registered office address of the company. If you don’t know these details, you can contact the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) as they have details of all registered Australian companies.
If the other party is a business you will need the name of the owner of the business, the correct business name and the business address. If you don’t know these details, you can contact Consumer and Business Services and they will be able to help you. You can call them on 131 882 or visit their website.
The CourtSA Help Centre will guide you through the process on how to register via the portal. If you require procedural advice please contact the CourtSA Registry on (08) 8204 2444 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
