Only entities that have completed the necessary forms for notifying the FMA of their election to form or join a DBG are included on this list.
The list represents our current population of DBGs and is subject to change from time to time.
This list is for information only and the listing of a business does not imply we have approved of the activities of the business and does not certify compliance of the business with applicable legislation.
Each reporting entity within the DBG must complete an annual AML/CFT report, however, not all entities with a DBG are necessarily reporting entities. Where they are not reporting entities, we have highlighted them as such.
This guideline is designed to help reporting entities assist to make the decision on whether to form a designated business group and understand which obligations may be shared by members of a designated business group (DBG).
This guideline is designed to help reporting entities forming a designated business group (DBG) understand the process for doing so. Entities may form a DBG if they are eligible to do so under the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (the AML/CFT Act) and associated regulations. This guideline highlights the eligibility criteria and election process, and explains the process for notifying an AML/CFT supervisor of the formation of a DBG, any addition or withdrawal of a member, or any change in details. Guidance on information sharing in a DBG is provided in the DBG Scope Guideline.
