The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) is an independent Crown entity and New Zealand’s principal regulator of financial markets, responsible for overseeing and enforcing a range of financial market legislation.
The FMA’s overarching purpose is to promote and facilitate the development of fair, efficient and transparent financial markets. Strong financial markets help New Zealanders plan for the future and their retirement, access capital and investment opportunities, manage risk, and participate in the economy.
The Companies Office has the mechanisms to collect levies through its registers, and to pass them on to the FMA. The collection of levies funds some of the activities of the FMA. When you use our services, you’ll see the levy portion of the fee on our fees schedules and invoices.
If you have any questions about FMA levies, contact the FMA on firstname.lastname@example.org.
