Handling money by persons outside the Commonwealth (other CRF money)

Other Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) money is defined in section 105(2) of the PGPA Act. It is money that forms part of the CRF, other than relevant money or any other money of a kind prescribed by the rules. An amount of money that is in the physical possession of, or in the bank account of, a person other than the Commonwealth, who is acting on behalf of the Commonwealth in relation to that money, will be other CRF money. It is not uncommon for persons outside the Commonwealth to handle other CRF money. For example, any person authorised through an arrangement to act for and on behalf of the Commonwealth to collect fees or levies and make payments of the amounts collected will handle other CRF money.
