AUSTRAC regulates certain business activities in the financial services, bullion, gambling and digital currency exchange sectors. These business activities are called designated services and have been identified because they pose a risk for money laundering and terrorism financing.

If you provide one or more designated services that have a geographical link to Australia, you are a reporting entity and have anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) obligations. Your obligations include reporting certain business activities and transactions to AUSTRAC, record-keeping and having an AML/CTF program.

Enrol or register with AUSTRAC

Depending on the services your business provides you may be required to enrol or register with AUSTRAC.
