New application - body corporate

An Agent Body Corporate licence is valid for 3 years and requires the following:

  • a nominated manager who holds a Tasmanian licence which has the same functions as those the company requires and
  • each company manager or director undertaking licensed activities must meet the criteria. This does not mean each director of the company should be a licensed person. However each person listed as a director will be assessed as if they are applying for a licence.
