Guest Writer for Wake Up World.

The ‘Australian Government’ is now set to ‘legally’ seize money from citizens bank accounts without their knowledge or approval.

After legislation was rushed through parliament, the government will
from May 31 be able to transfer all money from accounts that have not
been used for three years into their own revenues.

Legislation amended late last year means any account that has not
seen activity within three years can be transferred into the
Commonwealth’s hands – previously the rule was seven years.

This will mean that accounts with anything from $1 upwards that have
not had any deposit or withdrawals in the past three years will be
transferred to the Australian Securities and Investment Commission and
thus hundreds of millions of dollars in inactive bank deposits are
likely to flow to the Federal Government from May.

The money can be reclaimed from ASIC but the process can take months.

As the new law comes into effect at the end of May 2013 banks are
advising customers to make transactions as small as a dollar to ensure
they are not transferred to ASIC.

Experts warn this will have a negative impact on people that may have
put money away in a special account for their children’s education or
decided to put an inheritance in a separate account for a rainy day.

The banking industry believes the Government’s changes to inactive bank accounts legislation is just revenue raising.

Mr Munchenburg says the legislation was rushed through at the end of last year.

“A lot of suspicion at the time that the Government is rushing this
through because they were more concerned about their own financial
bottom line than they were about reuniting consumers with their
accounts,” he said.

“It was never clear to us why it had to be rushed through if it was only focused on reuniting consumers with accounts.”

Mr Munchenburg says three years seems an arbitrary time limit as the Government failed to consult the industry on the change.

“I don’t know why three years has been chosen over seven,” he said.

“Certainly, if the Government believed that seven years was too long,
we would have expected them to talk to us about what is an appropriate
timeline or how to deal with accounts where people have deliberately
left them alone, and then we’d avoid some of the problems that we are
concerned will affect customers.”

This cash grab comes as economists warn the government is on track to
hand down a $15 billion budget deficit in May as company tax receipts
collapse.

Before Christmas, Treasurer Wayne Swan junked the government’s
previously “rock solid” promise to produce a surplus in 2012-13. The
government had also been committed to surpluses in future financial
years, too.

In the UK this practice also exists and has for quite a number of
years, with the exception that in Britain the dormancy period is a far
greater one before assets are seized from such, supposedly, dead
accounts.

While, it would appear, in Australia the money seized from such
“dormant” accounts will be gobbled up by the treasury in the UK, at
least, the money goes for so-called “good causes”, though decided upon
and administered by the government.

The act of the Australian government, as the banking expert said,
appears to be aimed at bolstering the country’s finances and nothing
more.
