let’s talk


fit2work will conduct a check through the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to ensure that the applicant is an authorised AFS licence holder. Any business or person that offers or advises you about financial product must hold an Australian Financial Services (AFS) licence.

fit2work undertakes a search of ASIC’s register of Australian Financial Services licensees to validate whether the candidate holds an AFS licence or is authorised as a representative by an AFS licensee.

Under the Financial Services Reform (FSR) Act, an AFS licence is required if an entity is providing, or intending to provide, financial services. 

APRA oversees banks, credit unions, building societies, life insurance, friendly societies, general insurance and reinsurance companies and most members of the superannuation industry. fit2work will check an individual’s APRA qualification or disqualification from important roles within the Australian authorised deposit-taking, general insurance and superannuation industries due to conviction for an offence involving dishonest conduct or bankruptcy.

Australian Securities Investment Commission (ASIC) Banned and Disqualified Register contains details on people disqualified from managing an organisation under the Corporations Act.

In addition to determining restrictions from managing corporations, we also determine AFS banned / disqualified persons, banned securities representatives and banned future representatives.

We also advise of previous roles held and appointment and cessation dates.

fit2work will conduct a check through the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to confirm a candidate’s credit registration before engaging in credit activities under state and territory legislation.

fit2work conducts this check to reveal if the candidate has ever been subject to undertakings accepted by ASIC and enforceable in a court. An undertaking is generally accepted by ASIC as an alternative to civil or administrative action where there has been a contravention of the legislation administered by ASIC.
