Changing review date of company or scheme

Each year we send your company or scheme an annual statement shortly after the annual review date.

There are some cases where you may need to change your annual review date (i.e. to align dates across companies). A request to change a review date will be considered if the company or companies have:  

  • a common ultimate holding company
  • a common officeholder
  • a common responsible entity
  • exceptional circumstances

We will not change the annual review date to assist a registered agent in managing their workload (i.e. spread the review dates of the companies represented evenly across the year). 

How do I apply to change my review date?

You can apply at any time if you are:

  • an officeholder of the company or
  • a responsible entity for a scheme.

To apply complete the Application to change the review date of a company or registered scheme (Form 488). Only one application is required if you want to align multiple companies or schemes.

You must include the application fee with the form.

Please allow at least 10 business days for your application to be considered. We will write to tell you the outcome of your application.
