AML/CTF in Australia

The Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act (AML/CTF) imposes a risk-based approach to counter the money laundering problem. The obligations under the AML/CTF Act are obligatory for a wide range of financial services organisations including financial services firms; banks; building societies; credit unions; superannuation funds; and on the gambling sector.
