(a) the licensee ceases to carry on the business of administering the financial benchmark specified in the licence; or
(b) the licensee is a Chapter 5 body corporate, or under a foreign law is in a similar position to a Chapter 5 body corporate; or
(c) the licensee asks ASIC to do so; or

(i) an amount of levy (if any) payable in respect of the licensee;
(ii) the amount of late payment penalty payable (if any) in relation to the levy;
