- Background information about industry funding
- More information
To enable ASIC to calculate invoices, entities were required to submit or confirm pre-filled business activity metric data on the operation of their business for the 2019‑20 financial year. This was done via the ASIC Regulatory Portal.
Lodgements closed on 1 October 2020.
ASIC used the information provided to calculate each entity's share of the regulatory costs for the previous financial year.
Industry funding invoices to recover ASIC’s FY 2019-20 regulatory costs were issued in March 2021.

ASIC publishes indicative levies to give those regulated under industry funding laws an indication of what actual levy costs to expect. The indicative levies each year will be our best estimate based on information available to us. Industry can use the data in the CRIS to estimate their invoice for next year, noting that the figures remain an estimate are likely to change.

The Government's industry funding arrangements for ASIC became law in 2017.
This was the first year of the new regime where ASIC will recover most of its regulatory costs from regulated industries.
Industry funding was a key recommendation in the 2014 Murray Financial System Inquiry.
Developing the model was a substantial undertaking with a high level of robust engagement from industry sectors throughout the Government's consultation process.
