AUSTRAC's conscise statement of claim outlines the magnitude of the theoretical maximum fine Westpac could face.
"Westpac has contravened the act on over 23 million occasions, each contravention attracting a civil penalty between $17 million and $21 million," the regulator noted.
Assuming 23 million contraventions at the lower end of those maximum penalties, that amounts to a potential maximum fine of $391 trillion.
