Fees to update the Financial Advisers Register
Fees and notification periods apply for updating information on the Financial Advisers Register.
When a financial adviser's details change, the Australian financial services (AFS) licensee must update the Register within 30 business days.
A fee covers one financial adviser. For example, one fee for:
- appointing (adding) one new financial adviser
- updating multiple details at the same time about one financial adviser who is already on the Register
- ceasing (removing) one financial adviser.
Appointing, updating or ceasing two financial advisers incurs two fees. Appointing, updating or ceasing 25 financial advisers incurs 25 fees.
If the person is both a financial adviser and an authorised representative, one transaction (one fee) updates both the Financial Advisers Register and the Authorised Representatives Register (you must select both role types in the transaction).
