Does ChatGPT need an AFSL?
As a language model, ChatGPT does not need an Australian Financial Services (AFS) licence because it is not capable of providing financial services or advice. It is a tool that generates text based on the input it receives, but it does not have the ability to make decisions or offer recommendations. It is the responsibility of individuals and businesses to obtain financial advice from qualified and licensed professionals. In Australia, it is a legal requirement for businesses and individuals to hold an AFS licence if they provide financial services, including giving financial advice, to clients.
