Bikies have been disqualified from running several Queensland businesses after being identified in a joint operation between police and the corporate watchdog.
The six banned bikies had criminal convictions for dishonesty offences, automatically disqualifying them from holding company director or secretary positions.
Two businesses registered by criminals would be shut down, the Queensland Police Service and ASIC said in a statement.
"We are working closely with agencies like the QPS to identify those involved in organised criminal activities and prevent them from managing companies and operating businesses," ASIC Commissioner John Price said.
State Crime Command Assistant Commissioner Maurice Carless said the organisations would work together to ensure bikies were not using businesses as fronts for criminal activities.
Under the Corporactions Act anyone convicted of an offence involving dishonesty with jail time of three months or more can be removed as director or secretary.
The offenders are disqualified for five years from the date of conviction or release from prison.
