Australia is one of the largest senders of remittance in the world. According to the World Bank, Australia remitted US$ 16.8 Billion in the year 2017. The top three countries that receive the highest remittances from Australia are China ($2.92 billion), India ($1.94 Billion), and Vietnam ($1.18 billion). Closely followed by the United Kingdom, Philippines, Lebanon, Italy, Germany, France, and Sri Lanka among others. The recipients in the developing economies are comprised of millions of families, which are being supported by their friends and relatives who have migrated and settled in Australia. With transactions that span the globe, funds are remitted for a range of personal and business reasons, including sending regular financial support to the families in home countries by the migrant workers, sending funds for emergencies, sending money to travelers, and to children studying overseas. According to the Australian Bureau Statistics, there is over 7 million immigrant population in Australia.
Australia took a global leadership position by creating the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act of 2006, administered by the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) to ensure consumer safety and reduction of perceived risks associated with the remittance sector. AUSTRAC has put in place several rules and obligations such as reports on International Funds Transfer Instructions (IFTIs), Suspicious Matter Reports (SMRs), Threshold Transaction Reports (TTRs), and complying with Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CTF) regulations, including maintaining an AML/CTF Program.
Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), Australia’s competition regulator and national consumer law body is currently investigating a report submitted as part of an ongoing inquiry into competition in the Australian financial system which, found that consumers were struggling to compare fees for foreign transactions.
