Every Registered Filing Agent (RFA) must appoint at least one Registered Qualified Individual (RQI) before they can perform transactions on behalf of their clients. There is no capped to the number of RQIs each RFA may appoint and RQIs are allowed to be appointed to more than one RFA.
If there are any changes to the appointed RQIs in your firm, you must notify ACRA via BizFile+ using the transaction “Appointment or Withdrawal of Qualified Individual” within 14 days from the date of change. This transaction can only be filed by the authorised officers of the RFA (i.e. directors, secretaries, partners or owners). There is no fee payable for this transaction.
