All regulated remittance service providers (including Money Transfer Operators) in Australia can be viewed on the Australian remittance sector regulator, AUSTRAC, website.
Remittance companies operating in Australia are required to apply for registration with AUSTRAC as an independent remittance dealer, remittance network provider or an affiliate of a remittance network provider.
Remitters must apply to AUSTRAC to be on the new Remittance Sector Register.
Under the AML/CTF Act, it is an offence to provide designated remittance services if an individual or business is not registered with AUSTRAC.
Under the AML/CTF Act, AUSTRAC has the authority to publish details contained on the new Remittance Sector Register.
