Tue 10 April | 4:00PM - 5:30PM | Auckland CBD venue to be confirmed


GoAML is the prescribed method by which reporting entities submit Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) and Prescribed Transaction Reports (PTRs) to the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).

It will be essential for reporting entities to understand when the obligation to file an SAR or a PTR arises, how long they have to manage the process, and the information that they will need to collect, as there are mandatory data requirements.

It will greatly assist practitioners to be as familiar as possible with the goAML system to ensure they can meet their legislative reporting obligations. This session will be presented by a legal practitioner (herself a former AML Compliance Officer),  and a member of the FIU, who together will provide valuable insights into the working of the GoAML system, the issues that can arise, the most common errors made when filing reports and how the FIU handles the data it receives.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn more about when it will be necessary to file a suspicious activity or prescribed transaction report, what information needs to be included in a report, and the crucial issue of timing.
  • Understand better the practical features of GoAML and gain tips on how to actually file a report using the online facility. 
  • Gain insights into the role of the FIU, its investigative processes, decision making, record keeping and how best to engage with it if necessary. 
Who should attend?

This seminar will be relevant to almost all lawyers in practice but it will be of particular importance to senior partners and practice managers who will be responsible for the appointment of Compliance Officers.
