Industry contribution legislation

Some of the entities AUSTRAC regulates may be required to pay an annual industry contribution levy to cover AUSTRAC’s operating costs. Such entities are known as leviable entities.

There are two pieces of relevant legislation, the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre Industry Contribution Act 2011 and the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre Industry Contribution (Collection) Act 2011.
