Australian Financial Services Licence Navigator
Discover which Australian financial services licence (AFSL) or relief to apply for from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) under Australia's new regime for financial services providers based outside Australia.
New regulations for foreign financial services providers in Australia apply from 31 March 2023. To provide financial services in Australia after that, you must have the right licence or have been granted relief by the regulator.
You do not have to work through the new regulations to work out which licences or relief applies to you because our experts in Australian financial services regulation have done it for you.
Answer a few simple questions in our Australian Financial Services Licence Navigator and we will tell you which licensing or relief option you are likely to require to access the Australian market. The information is based on your home jurisdiction and the financial services you offer (or plan to offer) in Australia.
Take five minutes to avoid delays caused by applying too close to the deadline, or worse, penalties that might arise in Australia, your home jurisdiction or in another jurisdiction in which you operate.
On 11 June 2021, ASIC announced it would extend the transition period for Foreign Financial Services Providers requirement to hold an Australian financial services (AFS) licence for 12 months to 31 March 2023. By using our Licence Navigator you can find out what currently applies to your business, and to be kept up to date on developments should the framework change further.
