AML Online

AML Online is a new, secure platform for businesses to engage with DIA. In AML Online, businesses will be able to do a range of activities, including managing their details, delegating access to others, submitting documents and sending us queries.  

Businesses who need to register with DIA as their AML supervisor can also use AML Online. 

Access for AML Online is primarily for Compliance Officers, but they have the option of delegating access to others.

To register for AML Online, users will need a RealMe verified identity. This can be applied for online now at: The application can take up to five working days to process so please allow for this.

For businesses already registered with us, their Compliance Officers have been invited to activate their accounts using a unique activation link. AML Online  is now available from this page for businesses that haven’t registered with us yet.

Annual reporting 

AML Online will be available in time for this year’s annual reporting.  Businesses will need to submit their annual reports through AML online. This replaces the process used in previous years where a manual PDF had to be completed and emailed through to us. Read more about annual reporting.

Can I register with the Department using AML Online? 

Yes. If your business is supervised under the AML CFT legislation and you haven't registered with us as your supervisor you will be able to do this using AML Online.

To do so:

1. Ensure you have a RealMe verified identity.

2. Email with the subject: AML Online – Activation Link, and we will respond with an activation link.

What is the difference between a verified RealMe and a RealMe login?

A verified RealMe is a RealMe login where you have verified your identity using a passport, a birth or citizenship certificate or immigration document. To use AML Online you will need a verified RealMe as opposed to just a RealMe login.

For more information on how to verify your RealMe, please visit the RealMe website.

Why do I need to have a RealMe verified identity to use AML Online? 

Some of the information stored within AML Online is commercially sensitive. A RealMe verified identity ensures that only those with permission can access the information stored within AML Online. This includes the compliance officer as well as any delegates.  

What if I can’t get a RealMe verified identity? 

There are some circumstances when a person may not be able to get a RealMe verified identity, i.e. if they are based overseas and do not hold one of the following documents (NZ Passport, NZ Birth details, NZ Immigration, NZ Citizenship). 

Please let us know if this applies to you. We will make sure you have options to allow you to submit your annual report. Contact us at to let us know.

I’m a bit concerned that you can see my personal identity information, what can you see about me? 

RealMe doesn't store any of the identity information you provide about yourself – it just acts as a conduit. Your information is only shared with the organisations that you give consent to, so you always know exactly what you’re sharing with who. 

Your full name is the only information that you consent to share with DIA for AML Online.  Read more at
