Time is running out! AML/CTF Reporting

Share Post:

If AUSTRAC turned up and audited you today, would you be ready?

If you are required to submit a compliance report and you don’t submit your report by 31 March, you may be subject to enforcement action, which can include a remedial direction, and/or an infringement notice in the amount of $2,664, or $13,320 if you are a body corporate.

Here is a quick checklist to assess your current level of compliance.

The annual Compliance Report to AUSTRAC covers all the above elements. False or misleading information submitted is a federal offence, so it pays to report accurately and truthfully.

When you engage DWS for your AML/CTF compliance reviews and training, you not only get the peace of mind of knowing your program is fully compliant, but you also get Michelle’s assistance with submitting your Annual Report in the January – March 2021 period.

Time is running out to get your compliance program reviewed, updated or developed for the 2021 period. So call or email our Work Health Safety and Compliance Advisor, Michelle Pitman, on the details below to organise your review and training before the end of the month.

A recent client testimonial:
“Recently, we received notification from Austrac that they were planning to audit our AML program, and associated Risk assessment and staff training program. This included providing evidence of the mandatory review (from an independent body) that is required to be completed every 12-18 months. We had not had a review carried out. The program that we had, was written on the basis of an old template, and as it turned out, was out of date, and not addressing a lot of the requirements under the act. For a small fee, we engaged DWS to update our program, along with the other requirements, and this was sorted out inside of 2 weeks. I highly recommend any tavern or club engages DWS for the purpose of this task”
