This form only applies to legal practitioners who are required to notify of a change from their initial submitted Exemption Sub Regulation to a different Exemption Sub Regulation during the 2018/2019 year.
An example of when this is required:
If during the year a legal practitioner changes their employment as a government legal practitioner to an employed legal practitioner for a National Law Practice during the year. This will result in a change of Exemption Sub Regulation from 97(1)(d) to 97(1)(g).
For non-members of the Law Society of Western Australia an administration fee of $33 (inc GST) is payable for a change of Exemption Sub Regulation during the insurance year.
The $33 administration fee is payable when practitioners change their Exemption Sub Regulation to 97(1)(b), 97(1)(c), 97(1)(d), 97(1)(f) or 97(1)(g).
