Submission to Senate Committee on ABSF Bill 2019


On 13 February 2019, the Australian Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg, introduced the Australian Business Securitisation Fund Bill 2019 (Bill) into the House of Representatives.  

The Bill is broadly consistent with the exposure draft legislation which was released by Treasury in late December 2018, although the original “authorised debt security” amount of $10 million has been reduced to $5 million.  

On 14 February, the Senate referred the Bill to the Senate Economics Legislation Committee (Senate Committee) for an inquiry and report due by 26 March.  

The ASF made a submission to the Senate Committee on 6 March which has since invited the ASF to give evidence at a public hearing to be held in Sydney on Friday 15 March 2019.

Treasury have released further drafts of the legislation, explanatory materials, rules and investment mandate for the Australian Business Securitisation Fund. These documents can be access via the ABSF website
