Registrable Superannuation Entity (RSE) Licence - Australian Government

Description

You will require this licence if you operate as a trustee for a registrable superannuation entity (RSE). A trustee may be a:

  • Constitutional corporation;
  • Body corporate; or
  • Individual trustee.

All trustees of a registered RSE must be licensed. There are serious penalties for operating without an RSE licence.

There are different classes of RSE licences:

  • Public offer entity;
  • Non-public offer entity;
  • Extended public offer entity; and
  • Acting trustee.

The class of licence you obtain may specify the classes of registered RSE's that you can belong too.

Trustees of self-managed superannuation funds regulated by the ATO and public sector superannuation schemes are exempt, and all superannuation entities other than those self-managed superannuation funds regulated by the ATO and exempt public sector superannuation schemes need to be registered.

Only an RSE licensee can register a superannuation entity.
