RG 166 Licensing: Financial requirements
Issued 21 September 2017
This guide sets out the financial requirements you must meet as the holder of an Australian financial services (AFS) licence. The requirements vary depending on the financial products and services you offer.
If you are a body regulated by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), as defined in s3(2) of the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority Act 1998 (APRA Act), and are not required to comply with s912A(1)(d) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Corporations Act), RG 166 does not apply to you.
Note: From 1 July 2015, if you are the holder of a registrable superannuation entity (RSE) licence from APRA that is also authorised to operate registered managed investment schemes, you will be required to comply with s912A(1)(d).
