An Agent individual licence is valid for 3 years and allows you to:

  • employ staff
  • work for yourself
  • operate your own business
  • work for a business or company

Agent body corporate licence

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.
