Financial Intelligence Centre: Risk and Compliance Return deadline

During a meeting with industry associations on 14 July 2023, the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) reminded AIs to lodge their RCRs with the FIC before the relevant deadlines.

The FIC revealed that, in some industries, the rate of compliance with the requirement to lodge an RCR is quite low as a percentage of the registered AIs. The FIC is also of the view that the number of reports of suspicious transactions under section 29 of FICA look quite low.
