Review of financial management orders

NCAT can review the financial management orders that it makes.

Most financial management orders are indefinite and apply to all of the person's financial affairs. NCAT can exclude part of a person's estate from the financial management order in limited circumstances. Sometimes, NCAT will decide to review a financial management order within a specified time.

Request​in​g a review of a financial management order

You can apply for a review of a financial management order and request NCAT to revoke or vary the order. You can apply for the revocation of a financial management order if the person has regained the capacity to manage their affairs or it is in the best interests of the person for the order to be revoked.

To request a review, complete the application form and lodge with your attachments to NCAT's Guardianship Division.

Review o​f the appointment of a financial manager

You can apply for a review of the appointment of a particular financial manager rather than the financial management order itself. NCAT can only revoke the appointment of a financial manager if it is satisfied that:

  • The appointed manager seeks revocation, or
  • It would be in the best interests of the person with an appointed financial manager to have the appointment revoked, or
  • The financial management order itself has been revoked.
