Tips before submitting

Tip #1: Be aware of the blackout periods for a number of Adviser Online (AOL) features and the Adviser Online platform itself. This will occur as we transition to our new investment option suite which we covered in the May Product updates.

Tip #2: Don’t leave submitting forms to the last minute. To ensure there are no issues, we have provided a list of key cutoff dates below. Adhering to these will allow time to remedy issues.

Tip #3: Submit forms correctly, with attachments. For smooth processing, make sure forms are fully completed and come with all required attachments.

Tip #4: If you experience any technical issues uploading forms in Adviser Online, please email your form to registered_adviser@art.com.au with a brief explanation of the issue. You can also head to our Adviser Online FAQs and Troubleshooting Guide.

Tip #5: Submit next financial year requests in July. If you don’t want us to process the request this financial year, best to wait until 1 July to submit. Please note, due to upcoming changes to our investments there are some forms and transactions which will be discarded if not submitted by their specific cutoff dates and you’ll need to create a new application after 1 July. We’ve detailed these below.

Tip #6: For maximum efficiency, please submit requests to us via electronic channels. In the event you need to send something to us by mail, we recommend posting at least one week prior to the processing dates listed below to ensure timely delivery. (Express Post is highly recommended).
