Prescribed Transaction Reporting

From 1 November 2017, the Prescribed Transaction Reporting regulations come into force. We recommend you start preparing now.

If your business engages in cash transactions that exceed NZ$10,000, or sends or receives funds overseas which exceed NZ$1,000, you are going to need to be ready to commence reporting on this date.

Further information in relation to the Prescribed Transaction Reporting requirements is available on the New Zealand Police Financial Intelligence Unit website.
