After lodging Form 362, Agents can update the companies Registered Office Address with Form 484.
Please note that ASIC can take up to a few hours to process the lodged Form 362 and appoint the recorded agent on the form as the company's registered agent.
This can mean that any forms lodged immediately after Form 362 may be rejected by ASIC as you have yet to be appointed as the registered agent. Please allow for a few hours before attempting to lodge again.
