Report information on violations in the context of money laundering supervision (whistleblower system)


  • Through money laundering, illegally earned assets are smuggled into the legal economic circle and removed from the access of law enforcement authorities.
  • If you have information about potential or actual violations of the Money Laundering Act (such as tax evasion), you can report this completely anonymously to the competent supervisory authority.
    Your notice may help prevent money laundering or terrorist financing.
  • However, you must note that reporting via the anonymous whistleblower system is not the same as reporting a reportable suspected case to the Customs Customs Intelligence Unit (FIU) in accordance with the reporting obligation and ordinance authorisation in the Money Laundering Act. In this case, you must report your suspected case to the FIU. When submitting reports, you are not obliged to provide any personal information. The report can also be made anonymously.

You can report your report against the Money Laundering Act in writing or online and anonymously.

Written procedure:

  • You write a written report about the potential or actual violation of the Money Laundering Act. If available, attach evidence.
  • Important: You can submit your report anonymously in any case.
  • In the next step, you must locate the responsible body, for example through the service portals of the federal states. The report can be submitted by post, by e-mail (via a short-term e-mail address with immediate deletion) or via a lawyer. Upon receipt, the competent body shall examine the reported information.
  • If contact details are available from you and the responsible office has queries, a consultation can be made about your report.
  • In the case of anonymous transmission, further processing takes place without contact.
  • If the indications indicate a suspicion of a criminal offence, these will be passed on to the competent public prosecutor's office or police and followed up there.

Contact the State Administration Office.

There are no costs.

Duration: up to 8 weeks

The processing time is not relevant for the person making the report, because no results are communicated.
