Remittance service providers
A remittance service provider is an individual, business or organisation that accepts instructions from customers to transfer money or property to a recipient. Remittance service providers are also known as ‘money transfer businesses’.
Remittance service providers must be registered with AUSTRAC and recorded on the Remittance Sector Register.
