Structuring

Structuring is where a person deliberately:

  • splits cash transactions to avoid a single large transaction being reported in threshold transaction reports
  • travels with cash amounts in a way that avoids declaring cross border movements of the cash.

Structuring can be a money laundering technique and is against the law under the AML/CTF Act.
