Request for FMA levy relief
If you registered your company (or companies) on the Financial Service Providers Register between 25 November 2019 and 18 March 2020, the registration fees you paid included a Financial Markets Authority (FMA) levy of $460.00 (plus GST).
However, new regulations offer relief from this levy for 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.
If you registered your company on the FSPR from 19 March 2020, the levy was automatically waived, you do not need to request a refund.
How to apply
After you have registered your company (or companies) on the FSPR you can complete this request for relief.
