Remittance Sector Register and remittance registration actions
Any business that provides designated remittance services must be registered with AUSTRAC.
- Find out more about obligations for remittance service providers
- Find out more about the issue of unregistered remittance dealers.
We maintain a list of registered remittance service providers and have the authority to publish that register.
You can find out if a particular remittance service provider is registered by searching the Remittance Sector Register.
- You can search by their legal name or trading name by entering at least three characters. The more characters you enter, the more accurate your search is likely to be. Search results are limited to 200 records.
- You can search by their ACN, ABN or ARBN by entering the full number without spaces.
You will see the legal name, trading name/s, ACN, ABN and ARBN (if relevant) and the registered address. If you see an exclamation mark in a yellow circle, that means conditions have been imposed on the remittance service provider. You can see these conditions in the PDF file (although not all conditions are always published).
While we make every effort to keep the register up to date, there may be a delay between AUSTRAC receiving new or changed details and publishing the information.
Remittance registration actions
We can refuse your application. We can also suspend, cancel or refuse to renew your registration if we think your business or organisation poses an unacceptable risk of money laundering, terrorism financing, people smuggling or other serious crime. We can also impose conditions on your registration if we identify an unacceptable risk in your business or organisation, or its operation.
We can publish the names of the remittance service providers who are the subject of such decisions, and we may choose to publish the notice.
We can also revoke a decision.
