ASIC releases limited AFSL details

The corporate regulator has this afternoon released an information sheet that provides accountants with application details for a limited Australian financial services licence (AFSL).

The 14 page document provides guidance for accountants about ASIC’s licensing application process, and how it will apply to those seeking a limited licence.

It also outlines what information needs to be submitted in support of a limited AFSL application, and provides details about which ASIC guidance will be most relevant for those seeking a limited AFSL.

The document also offers detail on how ASIC will assess the organisational competence of the applicant, including the transitional arrangements that apply to recognised accountants who apply between 1 July 2013 and 30 June 2016.

It also contains training requirements for limited AFSL licensees and details regarding converting a limited AFSL to an AFSL with broader authorisations.

The current accountants’ exemption under the Corporations Regulations 2001 permits accountants to provide advice on the establishment of self-managed superannuation funds, without the need for an AFSL.

In April 2010, the government announced they would remove the ‘accountants’ exemption’ as part of the Future of Financial Advice reforms.
