ASIC acknowledges that due to COVID-19 restrictions, some financial advice businesses in Victoria may find it difficult to comply with the fee disclosure statement (FDS) and renewal notice obligations.
To assist affected financial advice businesses, ASIC has issued a no-action position in relation to these obligations. ASIC does not intend to take regulatory action against an Australian financial services (AFS) licensee or their representative for a breach of sections 962G, 962K and 962S of the Corporations Act in certain circumstances.
This no-action position applies to AFS licensees or representatives where their entire business or a substantial part of it is located in Victoria.
