AUSTRAC works closely with a range of partners to protect the Australian community from serious crime and terrorism.

As part of the National Intelligence Community (NIC) and the Attorney-General’s Portfolio, we engage closely with our partners across government, law enforcement and industry and produce intelligence that fits their strategic priorities

Our financial intelligence analysts provide actionable intelligence to support national security and law enforcement outcomes. This specialist financial intelligence is available to our partners in government and law enforcement to support criminal investigations and tactical operations that protect Australians from the harms of serious crime and terrorism.

We also contribute to international security and stability by sharing information and intelligence with financial intelligence units and anti-money laundering regulators in other countries.

AUSTRAC is a member of national and state task forces, providing specialist financial intelligence to national security and transnational serious and organised crime efforts.
