• Australian financial services licence

    The 'accountants' exemption' that allowed accountants to provide advice about establishing a self-managed super fund (SMSF) ended on 30 June 2016.

    Accountants who relied on this exemption but want to continue to provide this type of advice must now either obtain a limited Australian financial services (AFS) licence or become an authorised representative of a licence-holder or licensee.
