FAP regulatory returns

All licensed FAPs are required to complete and submit an annual regulatory return. The regulatory return is a series of questions to obtain an up-to-date understanding of the nature, size and complexity of your financial advice provider service.  

Licensees will be required to complete an annual regulatory return for the 12-month period ending 30 June and submit it to the FMA by 30 September. We will notify all licensees when it is time to complete and submit the regulatory return.  

If you would like to familiarise yourself with questions for the FAP regulatory returns you can read them at the links below. These documents are for information only; the actual regulatory returns data must be submitted through the FMA Online Services portal.
