Are there any fees to cease registering as an RTO?
ASQA does not charge any fees when you apply to cease operations as an RTO. You will need to bear in mind that until ASQA has approved your application, you are still considered to be active and you will still need to comply with the Standards of RTOs 2015 and the National Code 2018 (if applicable).
When will I hear the outcome of my withdrawal with ASQA?
ASQA will either approve or reject your request to cease operations as an RTO. You will be notified in writing of their decision and advise the effective date of their decision. If you do not agree with their decision, you can request for the decision to be reviewed under Section 42 of the NVR Act.
