AUSTRAC industry contribution 2018-19 – stakeholder consultation paper
AUSTRAC seeks stakeholder feedback on the consultation paper for the 2018-19 industry contribution:
The consultation paper includes a draft Ministerial Determination, which outlines the proposed charging model for determining component amounts of the 2018-19 industry contribution levy.
The discussion paper is open for consultation until Friday 22 June 2018.
- Draft Privacy Impact Assessment – AUSTRAC data matching program and Fintel Alliance
- Draft Costings – electronic safe harbour procedures for customers
The draft Privacy Impact Assessment considers the initial operational projects being undertaken by Fintel Alliance (‘Panama Papers’, ‘Online Money Mules’ and ‘Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network Data Exploitation’) and the AUSTRAC Data Matching Program. Fintel Alliance is a partnership between AUSTRAC, other government agencies, NGOs, academia and reporting entities. The initial projects are intended to facilitate collaborative, innovative and timely sharing of financial intelligence with Fintel Alliance partners in order to manage money-laundering and terrorism-financing risk. The Data Matching Program involves obtaining external data from a variety of non-open and open sources to enhance AUSTRAC’s intelligence and research capabilities.
Consultation closed on 8 May 2017.
AUSTRAC seeks stakeholder feedback on the draft costings for the proposed amendments to the Chapter 4 electronic safe harbour provisions for customers. AUSTRAC estimates that these draft amendments will generate average deregulatory savings of $7.2 million for affected businesses and $5.8 million for individuals over the next ten years resulting in a total average annual saving of $13 million.
AUSTRAC seeks close consideration from industry on the costing estimates, including whether the assumptions are reasonable and whether the population estimates are smaller or greater.
