Otherwise just pay up.
I had similar experience before.
I was caught by the fixed speed camera, my car was registered in a company name (government leased car) . I did the right thing by nominating myself as the driver, so that the fine can be addressed to me. I sent the form off and never heard from anyone for the next three years. The nomination form was probably lost in postage.
Three years later they sent a legal fine notice to the company about the speeding fine. The company paid for it. By then I have sold the car off.
I did not get the demerit point deduction but I did pay the company the amount that I was originally fined with.
