Dear members

Please see the below response to our recent submissions to the Attorney-Generalís Department regard the current review of the ALM/CTF statutory review.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you would like to attend the planned round table discussions.

Good afternoon

Thank you for your recent submission to the Attorney-Generalís Department consultation on the extension of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing regime.

We are now planning a number of roundtables in Sydney on Monday, 6 March 2017 as the next step in the consultation process. We would like to sit down with representatives from your sector to discuss your submissions, issues raised and next steps. Also in attendance at these roundtables will be KPMG consultants who have been engaged to carry out the cost-benefit analysis of the regime extension.

Grateful if you can advise whether you, or another representative from your business or organisation would be available to participate in Sydney on 6 March.
