ASIC revokes AFS licence of Woodsdale Corporation Pty Ltd
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) today announced the revocation of the Australian Financial Services (AFS) licence of Woodsdale Corporation Pty Ltd, which was granted an AFS licence on 9 July 2002 with licence number 220133.
The official announcement stated that ASIC made the decision to withdraw the listing because Woodsdale Corporation Pty Ltd has not provided financial services since 2017. ASIC said the regulator has the power to revoke AFS licences held by a body corporate if it ceases to carry on the business of financial services.
Woodsdale Corporation Pty Ltd may apply to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for a review of ASIC’s decision to withdraw its listing.
