Banking Code Review Submissions
Every three years, the Banking Code Review reviews Australia’s banking regulations, the Banking Code of Practice. The Terms of Reference included whether banks treat their customers fairly, and issues of access to banking and discrimination experienced by business customers. We argued the Banking Code of Practice needs to fully incorporate the term ‘small business’ in order to protect sex workers from banking discrimination. Our submission lays out how banking discrimination occurs, and how to prevent it.
The Reviewer published an Interim Report and called for further submissions on this Interim Report. Our submission on the Interim Report of the 2021 Banking Code Review highlighted the large number of submissions which focused on the issue of banking discrimination, and the need for the Review to acknowledge and address this issue in its recommendations.
