You need to inform us if there is any change in the information about you recorded in the public register. 

This covers all information from a change of name, phone number or address to a new employer or anything that might prohibit someone from being licensed as an agent.

You can update some details yourself in the licensee portal. For more significant changes, for example, a change to your company name or a criminal charge against you, please contact us.

A principle or eligible officer can:

  • View and download documents (invoices and licence certificates)
  • Contact us to change trust account details.
