FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q) Why the impetus to complete training now?
A) Are you on the Financial Services Register?
The RG146 SMSF Specialist Course offers you the opportunity to be recognised as an “existing adviser”, benefiting from transitional arrangements for the new financial adviser professional standards.
On 1 August 2018 ASIC announced changes to reporting dates for a number of required notifications in the transition to the new financial adviser professional standards reforms as follows:
18-225MR Professional standards reforms for financial advisers
Financial advisers who are listed on the Financial Advisers Register (FAR) between 1 January 2016 and 1 January 2019 will be recognised as an ‘existing provider’ under the new professional standards.
Therefore, financial advisers who are currently authorised to provide personal advice to retail clients on more complex financial products should make sure they are on FAR.
Without recognition as an ‘existing provider’ an adviser must pass an exam and complete an approved qualification by 1 January 2019 to work as a financial adviser. They must also undertake a year of work and training.
Q) I have completed some of the RG146 requirements for “providing advice” but not all. Which areas are covered by the RG146 SMSF Specialist course provided by I Love SMSF & SMSF Training Group?
