Foreign Investment in Australia (FIRB)
Australia generally welcomes foreign investment. The Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) screens certain foreign investment proposals on a case-by-case basis to determine whether a particular proposal is contrary to the national interest. This brochure explains some of the rules governing the screening process through FIRB.
The brochure covers:
- What laws govern foreign investment
- Who is regulated
- Types of transactions that are regulated
- Monetary thresholds
- Special rules for foreign government investors
