Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N99506 - N99509 lodged by Finn Financial Planning & Ors [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       For Official Use Only


Dear Ms Cox

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Finn Financial Planning Pty Ltd, Finn Professional Practice Sales Pty Ltd, Finn Hotel and Accommodation Brokers Pty Ltd and Finn Mergers and Acquisitions Pty Ltd on 14 December 2016. They have been allocated the registration numbers N99506 to N99509.  The notifications and this email will be placed on the ACCC’s public register which is available on the ACCC’s website.


The protection from legal action provided by the notifications commences automatically 14 days after the lodgement date, unless the ACCC objects.


On the basis of the information that you have provided, and that the parties will disclose all relevant terms and conditions to customers, the ACCC does not object to the notifications at this time.

If at any time circumstances change, or the ACCC receives further information, such that it is satisfied that the public benefits from the third line forcing conduct do not outweigh the public detriments, the ACCC may remove the protection provided by the notifications.


Please contact Ms Kabita Prasad on (02) 6243 1187 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
