Regulatory reform: limited licensing and the accountants’ exemption

The CA ANZ financial advice advocacy team in Australia is currently working on a review of limited licensing to develop an effective and permanent model for the provision of limited financial advice by accountants.

In brief

  • The current model for the provision of limited financial advice has become unworkable
  • CA ANZ proposes a 'strategic advice' model which is decoupled from products
  • The proposed model means more Australians can benefit from more affordable quality financial advice from a trusted professional adviser
