Clive Palmer has been charged with criminal offences by the corporate watchdog in relation to his troubled Sunshine Coast resort.

The businessman and former federal politician is facing one charge of aiding, abetting, counselling or procuring the commission of an offence by another person.

During a brief mention at Brisbane magistrates court on Friday, at which Palmer did not appear, his lawyer Christopher Wilson said they would be arguing there was no case to answer when the matter goes to a hearing in June.

Palmer Leisure Coolum Pty Ltd has also been charged by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission with proposing or announcing a bid then failing to make an offer within two months.

The June hearing is expected to run for one hour and Palmer is due to appear.

Further information is being sought from Asic.
