Reporting Entity System Transformation (REST) Program

Reporting Entity System Transformation (REST) Program

The REST Program will replace the current AUSTRAC Online interface with a modern and user-friendly platform. This will improve AUSTRAC’s ability to process the significant volumes and types of data that you and other regulated entities provide to us on a daily basis. 

Several features have been delivered under the REST program to date, including:

  • New capability to enable reporting entities to submit increased volumes of International Electronic Transfer Funds Instruction (IFTI-E) transaction reports 
    • Quick reference guides to navigate the new user interface for impacted reporting entities (ISO 20022 guidance).
  • New IFTI-E schema enabling our entities to report in international standard format (ISO 20022).

We have also delivered internal features to support our engagement with reporting entities, including:

  • A content management capability to more efficiently deploy the Annual Compliance Report and collect relevant and timely information from you and other reporting entities 
  • An automated levy calculation system to enhance industry contribution processes with reporting entities.

We are focused on delivering the following features in 2024 and 2025: 

  • A new AUSTRAC Online platform to replace the current AUSTRAC Online
  • New enrolment and registration forms to provide a more user-friendly experience for providing your business information to us
  • Uplifting transaction reporting processes.

Get involved

Engagement with our stakeholders is important to the REST Program as we deliver functionality.
