|MFAA Membership Diploma deadline
The MFAA is ensuring their database has captured all Diploma completions correctly before sending a letter to those members who are “not compliant” advising them of their MFAA membership cancellation. These members will then have until 30 April 2013 to provide evidence of completion of their Diploma where their membership will be reinstated. Members not providing completion evidence by this date, and wanting to re-join MFAA, will need to reapply for MFAA membership. In terms of those members who are “registered/enrolled but not yet complete” or “in progress” with you, these members will need to complete the Diploma ASAP. We have instructed these members to provide evidence of their enrolment/registration/in progress.

Financial Advisors, Accountants and Real Estate Representatives – beware and prepare!
Are you qualified to talk credit issues with your clients? Planners should include credit notification in Financial Plans they prepare and present. Accountants are constantly asked credit questions by their clients. Mortgage brokers deal with these circumstances continually. Real Estate Representatives are asked credit questions also. So how do you advise your clients and grow your business whilst operating within the regulations.
Here are two examples that could see you potentially breaking the law if you are not qualified to give credit advice.
1. Providing advice about a client’s financial arrangements, including their home loans
The planner goes further to suggest a particular home loan product themselves that the client should switch to. This could be considered to be home loan credit assistance. In addition, if they made a positive recommendation to the client that they should stay with their current product or credit provider, this could also be considered to be home loan credit assistance.
2. Suggesting a client take out a home loan with a particular lender
This would be home loan credit assistance, regardless of whether the Financial Advisor, Mortgage broker, Accountant or Real Estate Representative earns a commission or not.
As usual with these legislative changes, there are grave dangers for those who give advice and do not hold the appropriate certification and authorisation.
AAMC Training can help you become accredited in this important jurisdiction with an excellent course.
Financial Planners , Mortgage brokers, Accountants or Real Estate Representative can possibly secure credits towards studies they have already completed within their existing qualification, plus past experience.
Do not let you clients go elsewhere for this advice as there is a strong possibility they will not come back.
