RG 2 AFS Licensing Kit: Part 2 – Preparing your AFS licence application
Issued 25 August 2016
This is a guide for applicants applying for an Australian financial services (AFS) licence or to vary their AFS licence. This guide forms Part 2 of the AFS Licensing Kit and outlines how to:
- complete the AFS licence application form (FS01), or an application to vary an AFS licence (FS03), and
- prepare ‘core’ supporting proof documents.
An application for an AFS licence or a licence variation comprises the relevant application form and supporting core proof documents, with all of these documents provided to us at the same time.
Note: It is an offence under s915C(2) of the Corporations Act 2001 to provide false or misleading information to ASIC. False or misleading information in an application (including a material omission) may also be grounds to revoke any AFS licence granted based on the application.
Applicants should also read Part 1 (RG 1), which explains the process of applying for and varying an AFS licence. Applicants will need to read Part 3 (RG 3) if they are asked to send us ‘additional’ proofs.
