Financial Transaction Reports Act

Like the AML/CTF Act, the Financial Transaction Reports Act 1988 (FTR Act) imposes certain obligations on solicitors and entities known as ‘cash dealers’ under the FTR Act. However, because the obligations specified in the FTR Act have largely been replaced by obligations under the AML/CTF Act, the FTR Act now mostly affects solicitors, and motor vehicle dealers who act as insurers or insurance intermediaries.
