ASIC has remade two class orders on mortgage offset accounts and factoring arrangements, with minor amendments, following a largely ignored consultation.
The financial services regulator released a consultation paper earlier this year on re-establishing the instruments that were due to expire on 1 October 2017.
The paper outlined that the instruments were “operating effectively and efficiently and continue to form a necessary and useful part of the legislative framework”, but suggested a few minor changes to “ensure the relief applies in the intended way”.
As no submissions were received in response to the proposals outlined, the instruments have now been remade as proposed.
For example, the Mortgage offset accounts class order [CO 03/1048] will be reinstated with the following amendments:
Likewise, the class order Factoring arrangements: Licensing, hawking and disclosure relief [CO 04/239] will include:
The ASIC Corporations (Mortgage Offset Accounts) Instrument 2017/795 will replace Class Order [CO 03/1048] Mortgage offset accounts, while the ASIC Corporations (Factoring Arrangements) Instrument 2017/794 will replace Class Order [CO 04/239] Factoring arrangements: Licensing, hawking and disclosure relief.
