Fees to update the Financial Advisers Register

Fees and notification periods apply for updating information on the Financial Advisers Register. Fees also apply when applying to register a financial adviser with ASIC.

When a financial adviser's details change (including provisional financial advisers and time-share advisers), the Australian financial services (AFS) licensee must update the Register within 30 business days.

Standard fees

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
  • ceasing (removing) one financial adviser
  • applying to register one financial adviser with ASIC.

Appointing, updating, ceasing or registering two financial advisers incurs two fees. Appointing, updating, ceasing or registering 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).
