If your financial service provider (FSP) has been deregistered, you can in certain circumstances apply to have it reregistered. There's no fee for reregistration, but you must apply within 60 days of being deregistered.
Who can reregister
You can only reregister if your FSP:
- was still in the business of providing a financial service when it was deregistered, or
- was deregistered because you didn't pay fees that were due and we're now satisfied that these have been paid.
Before you apply
Before you apply to reregister, you must pay any overdue fees. We can't accept your application if you haven't paid them.
How to apply
To request reregistration to the register, please complete and submit our request form.Request reregistration of an FSP
While you won’t be required to log in to complete this request, you must have the following:
- a RealMe® login
- an online services account with the Financial Service Providers Register (FSPR)
- authority to act for your FSP.
What happens next
We’ll consider your request for reregistration and email you the outcome.
If we accept your request for reregistration we’ll notify:
- any authorities you were previously licensed by to provide financial services — that is, the FMA or the Reserve Bank
- the dispute resolution scheme (DRS) you belong to, if applicable, and
- the public, by placing a notice of reregistration against your FSP on the Financial Service Providers Register (FSPR).
Filing annual confirmations
You must file an annual confirmation within 20 working days if:
- you were deregistered because we considered you were no longer carrying on business, and
- you had failed to file an annual confirmation.
