AUSTRAC Compliance Reporting due March 31st
Each year before March 31st, hospitality venues must submit an independent review of their AML/CTF program.
Every venue offering a Designated Service—defined as any establishment with gaming machines or TAB offerings—is obligated to submit an AUSTRAC compliance report by the 31st of March 2023. This requirement applies universally to all venues across Australia, with the exception of those having fewer than 15 machines and no TAB services. The compliance report is mandated by the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006.
As the March 31 deadline is now looming, we are busy preparing Independent Compliance Audits and Reviews to ensure your AUSTRAC obligations are met in time. DNS Specialist Services has the expertise required to ensure your venue completes a compliant and proactive compliance report.
What we will provide:
As per AUSTRAC guidelines, an independent review entails an impartial assessment of your Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CTF) program. This assessment ensures that your program not only aligns with its specified requirements but also effectively addresses inherent risks, complies with legal obligations, and demonstrates practical efficacy. AUSTRAC mandates that the independent reviewer possesses a comprehensive understanding of the business or organization, is well-versed in money laundering and terrorism financing risks, and maintains impartiality throughout the review process. Our independent AML/CTF Audit will include:
- Full review of all documents, policies, and procedures.
- Independent Audit Report outlining findings and key areas required for compliance.
- Clear set of action items for quick follow.
- Assistance post-audit to rectify outstanding items.
