The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) serves as the national agency for receiving, requesting, analyzing, investigating and disseminating information concerning all suspected proceeds of crime, suspicious transactions or activities, cash transportation reports and other information relevant to money laundering, associate predicate offences and terrorist financing.
It was established by dint of Section 12 of the Money Laundering (Prevention) Act No. 20 of 2000, which was repealed and replaced by the Money Laundering (Prevention) Act No. 8 of 2011.
The Dominica Financial Intelligence Unit is proud to launch FIUConnect, its online e-filing system. FIUConnect is designed to allow suspicious transaction reports (STRs) to be formulated and electronically submitted in a secure and efficient manner by entities registered with the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). By removing the need to hand-deliver paper-based forms utilizing existing methods, it is hoped that FIUConnect will be a viable alternative for those reporting entities who have historically utilized these methods.
