Media releases

AUSTRAC has cancelled the registration of Sydney-based independent remitter Ocean Pass Finance Pty Ltd (Ocean Pass), as it is satisfied that its registration involves significant money laundering or terrorism financing risk.

Today, AUSTRAC cancelled the registration of a Melbourne based remitter, AVSForex Pty Ltd (AVSForex), following the conviction of its sole director for money laundering.
