The corporate regulator has outlined the amounts advice licensees might be expected to pay in order to fund its regulatory costs for 2018-19.
Licensees providing personal advice to retail clients on relevant financial products will likely have to pay $1,500 plus $907 per adviser, ASIC said in its Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS) for its funding model for 2018-19.
For licensees providing personal advice to retail clients on products that are not relevant financial products, the levy is predicted to be $1,958.
Licensees only providing general advice will likely have a flat $828 levy, while licensees providing personal advice only to wholesale clients will be expected to pay a flat $566 levy.

The indicative levies are a guide and the amounts are likely to change when ASIC’s regulatory costs are known and published in December 2019.
