Conduct money for subpoenas

CBA’s preference is for conduct money to be paid by Electronic Funds Transfer.

To pay conduct money by Electronic Funds Transfer please use the following account and transaction description:

Account BSB: 062 379
Account number: 10036390
Transaction description: Court proceeding number or LEA reference numbers

Please ensure that you provide a payment confirmation receipt when serving a subpoena on CBA.

By accepting a payment of conduct money by Electronic Funds Transfer, CBA reserves its rights to request or apply for additional amounts which may be incurred with respect to:

  1. witness expenses in complying with a subpoena; and/or
  2. CBA's cost for the retrieval, review and collation of documents and records which may be responsive to a subpoena.

Timeframes for production of documentation

To assist with timing of production for notices or subpoenas served on CBA, we provide the following information:

  1. CBA requests that, where practical, 14 days’ prior notice be provided for any production to provide CBA with sufficient time to conduct appropriate searches, retrieve and review documents and arrange production.
  2. For any notices or subpoenas which request a broad range of documents (either by reference to the type of document or the period to which the document relates), CBA may require more than 14 days. If so, we will let you know at the earliest opportunity.
