GoAML – Financial Intelligence Unit Reporting Tool

GoAML is a standard application (software system) developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) for Financial Intelligence Units worldwide to counter Terrorist Financing and Money Laundering.


The GoAML Web application is the prescribed method by which reporting entities must submit Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs), Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs), Large Cash Transaction reports (LCTs), and International Fund Transfer reports (IFTs) to the New Zealand Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).

The GoAML Web application allows rapid and secure exchange of information between the FIU and reporting entities. The confidentiality of the data collected is ensured.

GoAML Client

GoAML Enterprise (Client) is the application the FIU use to review (analyse and investigate) the information submitted by reporting entities using GoAML Web. Different report types and the submission methods may not be subject to all of these validation steps.

Registering in GoAML

Reporting entities need to check their reporting obligations (what activities and transactions they need to report) with their Sector Supervisor.

Once reporting entities have confirmed their reporting obligations they will need to register in GoAML. Instructions can be found in the Resource Library.

Reporting entities will be contacted by the FIU once they have completed the set up instructions and their access has been fully established by the FIU.

Reporting Documentation - Resource Library

Guidance documentation on reporting is available from the Resource Library (within GoAML). To access the Resource Library, reporting entities will need to log into GoAML and click on the question mark (?) icon on the task bar.
