End of year case processing

Having regard to the statutory timeframes of 30 days for assessing notifications under the FATA, and up to a further 10 days for receiving no objection notifications in response, investors are advised that notifications lodged for the remainder of the year are expected to be finalised next year. Treasury is also currently receiving a high volume of notifications, reflecting elevated M&A activity across the economy. Wherever possible, Treasury will continue to prioritise and meet genuine commercial deadlines during the period ahead.
