Getting Started


When High Value Dealers need to do AML CDD

From August 1st 2019, High Value Dealers (HVD) must comply with the AML-CFT Act. You must conduct CDD if you trade in high value goods and make or accept cash transactions totaling $10,000 NZD or more.
This includes, but not limited to:

  • cheque payments equal to or greater than $10,000 NZD. Cheques are considered as cash for the purpose of the AML/CFT ACT.
  • cash installment payments totalling $10,000 NZD or more.

High value goods which are covered by the AML/CFT Act include:

• Motor vehicles or ships
• Jewellery, watches, gold, silver, or other precious metals
• Diamonds, sapphires, or other precious stones
• Paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs or carving in any medium
• Protected foreign objects
• Protected New Zealand objects
• Other artistic or cultural artifacts
