Managing the gap in the PSC limited liability scheme

CPA Australia’s current PSC limited liability scheme expires on 7 October 2017. Our application for a new Scheme has been lodged and the approval process is underway. There will, however, be a gap before the new scheme commences.

To support members in the interim, CPA Australia has arranged a group Member's Professional Indemnity Excess Insurance Policy for public practice certificate holders, effective 8 October 2017. This is at no additional cost to you.


Minimum professional indemnity insurance (PII) requirements under CPA Australia’s By-Laws:

  • minimum of $2 million in PII cover for members in mainland Australia and $1 million for members located elsewhere
  • provision for multiple automatic reinstatement following a claim
  • provision for an excess for each and every claim
  • cover for losses arising out of dishonesty (fidelity cover)
  • indemnity for all of the Public Accounting Services that you provide
  • unlimited retroactive cover
  • cover for everyone affiliated with the practice 
  • provision for run-off cover.

A detailed explanation of the requirements can be found in Managing your risks with insurance (PDF).
