ASIC charges Ding (Tim) Yang, Victorian mortgage broker of the banned Advanced Choice Finance

Advanced Choice Finance Pty Ltd (ACF), a former Melbourne based mortgage brokerage company, has been charged with one count of knowingly making a false statement in a credit licence annual compliance certificate lodged with ASIC.  Mr Ding Yang, director of ACF, has also been charged with aiding and abetting ACF in making the false statement.

ACF held an Australian credit licence and Mr Yang was the sole fit and proper person and responsible manager on the licence.

ASIC alleges that in or about July 2012 Mr Yang had his lender accreditation with the Bank of Melbourne terminated, and in April 2016 Mr Yang and ACF had their membership with aggregator Connective OSN Pty Ltd terminated. It is alleged that in January 2017 Mr Yang, on behalf of ACF, completed and lodged a credit licence annual compliance certificate with ASIC in which he falsely certified that none of ACF’s fit and proper people had their accreditation cancelled by a lender or their membership with an aggregator terminated.

The alleged offense pertains to section 225(3) of the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009.

The cancellation of ACF’s credit licence was effective from 14 August 2019. Mr Yang’s banning is recorded on ASIC’s Banned and Disqualified Persons Register.

The matter has been adjourned to 3 February 2021 for pleas to be heard in the Melbourne Magistrates Court.
