G2 can take the guesswork and complexity out of financial licensing applications. Talk to us should you be considering any of the areas below.
Australian Financial Services licensing applications
Applying for an AFS Licence can be a daunting task that can consume time and financial resources. Let the experts at G2 undertake your licensing obligations. We will liaise with ASIC and guide you through the process to ensure that your transition to your new financial services business is comprehensive and seamless.
Limited Australian Financial Services licensing applications
G2 has received interest from accountants who currently provide SMSF services in regard to the new licensing requirements which develop from the FOFA reforms. One aspect of these changes will be the cessation of the exemption provided to applicable accountants who provide advice on the establishment of SMSFs without the need for an AFS Licence.
Recognised Accountants have been able to apply for a limited AFS Licence since 1 July 2013. A Recognised Accountant is defined as a person who holds a Certificate of Public Practice issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, or a Public Practice Certificate issued by CPA Australia or by the Institute of Public Accountants.
G2 can guide you through the regulatory procedures and obtain a limited AFS Licence on your behalf so you can stay focused on your current business operations.
Australian Financial Services licensing variations
Do you currently hold an AFS Licence and are considering providing new financial products and services? Any new business opportunities require that your proposed financial products and services comply with your existing AFS Licence authorisations. Let the experts at GFIN undertake the process of varying your AFS Licence so that you can remain focused on your own business objectives.
ASX Participant applications
There are many benefits from becoming a Participant of the ASX, however, such benefits also bring about extensive responsibilities and obligations. Let the experts at G2 take the burden away from you when preparing your application. We will also ensure that you maintain the appropriate level of resources and competencies for you to be able to satisfy the ASX’s ongoing requirements.
