Advisers that are relying on the sole-adviser exemption and who wish to continue operating as a sole-adviser need to register their company on the FSPR as a financial advice provider. Registration includes an FMA levy of $460.00 plus GST. A relief from the levy is offered to those who:
- Rely on a sole-adviser exemption in the current regime, and
- Have registered a company on the FSPR between 25 November 2019 and 28 September 2020 and indicated the company’s intention to apply for a transitional financial advice provider licence or to be an authorised body under another financial advice provider’s licence.
