Draft legislation on how ASIC will regulate claims handling has now been released by Treasury. Many businesses that handle and settle claims will need to be licensed as an AFS Licence holder or authorised representative by 1 July 2020.

In the latest blog in our Royal Commission Response series with Finity we look at:

  • Who needs to be licensed;
  • Exemptions;
  • What further obligations apply;
  • Disclosure;
  • Timeframes; and
  • How to prepare for the changes.

If you need advice on how to prepare your business for the changes, get in touch - we’d be happy to help.
