Digital onboarding in Australia

Fintech Software

Financial services providers can carry out fully digitised onboarding of clients, subject to compliance with know your customer (KYC) and AML/CTF obligations. Under the AML/CTF Rules, electronic verification of client information and data may be undertaken with or without hard-copy documentation. Financial services providers may use safe harbour documentation-based or electronic-based procedures to verify individuals where the reporting entity determines that the relationship with the customer is of medium or lower money laundering or terrorism financing risk. During the covid-19 pandemic, AUSTRAC released guidance confirming that this and the AML/CTF Rules support flexible KYC processes and procedures, and that face-to-face or documentation-based procedures are not required or the only method for meeting KYC obligations.1
