OVERVIEW OF THE REFORM
From 1 July 2016 the accountants' exemption, allowing advice to be provided on the establishment and winding up of an interest in a SMSF without a Financial Services Licence, will be removed.
This means that if you wish to continue to provide this advice to your clients, you must be appropriately licensed under the AFS licensing framework.
OBTAINING A LIMITED LICENCE
Accountants & other advisers can apply through ASIC for a limited Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) from 1 July 2013.
Licence Application and Variation Support
Licensee Select can help you step through the process of applying for your AFSL and work with you to ensure that the process is managed in the most streamlined manner as possible & that disruptions to normal operating rhythm are minimised.
Should you need to vary your AFSL due to a change in the services your business provides, we will assist you in submitting your variation application to ASIC. As with the application process, our involvement is designed to provide a streamlined outcome when liaising with the regulator.
RUNNING YOUR OWN LICENCE
Once granted, a limited AFSL enables you to provide a range of SMSF and 'class of product' advice, however you are responsible for ensuring compliance with the licence obligations and meeting the relevant requirements of the Corporations Act, including the conduct and disclosure obligations, and licensing conditions.
