4 Transitional arrangements for charging of fees
For section 1496 of the Act, Part 5D.3 (other than Division 4) of the Act applies to a licensed trustee company as set out in this regulation.
If a licensed trustee company had an existing client at the commencement of Schedule 1 to these Regulations, the fee the company was entitled to charge under the relevant State law for traditional trustee company services to the client continues to apply to those services whether or not the relevant State law has since been repealed.
In this regulation, a relevant State law is a law of a State or Territory in force immediately before the commencement of Schedule 2 to the Corporations Legislation Amendment (Financial Services Modernisation) Act 2009 that regulates the fees that may be charged by companies for the provision of traditional trustee company services.
Subject to this Part, a licensed trustee company may charge fees for the provision of traditional trustee company services.601TBA(2) [ Limit on fees]
If a provision of this Part limits the fees that a licensed trustee company may charge for the provision of a particular traditional trustee company service, the trustee company must not charge fees for that service in excess of that limit.
Note 1: Failure to comply with this subsection is an offence (see subsection 1311(1) ).
Note 2: Excess fees may also be recovered under section 601XAA .
