In the Anti-Fraud Office, the tax and social fraud units of the Federal Ministry of Finance are consolidated. This ensures a coordinated and more efficient strategic and nationwide operational control of the preventive and repressive fight by the Ministry of Finance against fraud.
The Anti-Fraud Office sees itself externally as a fair partner of honest businesses and society, and internally as a performance-based but also employee-oriented organisation. The AFO (Amt für Betrugsbekämpfung, ABB) is set up as an all-Austrian financial authority for criminal offences (excluding customs duty) and service, consisting of the following divisions:
- Fiscal Offences
- Financial Police
- Tax Investigation
- Central Office for International Cooperation
