Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce

The ACIC is part of the Criminal Assets Confiscation Taskforce (CACT). The CACT is led by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and also includes the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

The CACT is a Commonwealth initiative dedicated to taking the profit out of crime by targeting criminals and their assets derived from unexplained wealth.

The CACT was established in 2011 to enhance the identification and pursuit of criminal wealth, where there is a link to a Commonwealth offence.

Our agency provides intelligence analysis and legal support, intelligence gathering, strategic advice on illicit money flows impacting on Australia, and helps to generate and prioritise crime targets for proceeds of crime action through the ACIC-led National Criminal Intelligence Fusion Capability.

More details about the CACT are on the AFP website.
