Glossary > Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC)
The Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (or AUSTRAC) is the financial intelligence agency of the Australian government. It supervises financial transactions and identifies financial frauds such as money laundering, terrorism financing or tax evasion.
The AUSTRAC requires that VASPs register with them by filing the AUSTRAC Business Profile Form (ABPF). It also gives guidance on how to comply with the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act (AML/CTF Act) with the adoption of risk management processes.
