Authorised deposit-taking institutions' points of presence statistics

Wednesday 19 October 2022

APRA publishes on an annual basis, a detailed listing of the physical banking service channels provided to Australians by authorised deposit-taking institutions (ADIs).

The points of presence statistics provides a summary of the banking services provided to Australians by ADIs. The statistics covers four types of service channels: face-to-face points of presence offering a branch level of service, other face-to-face points of presence, automatic teller machines (ATMs), and electronic funds transfer at point of sale (EFTPOS) machines. 

This data does not include banking services provided online or via mobile banking applications.

The database provides detailed information at a sector, institution, state and service channel type level. The individual points of banking presence are categorised using the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS), which classifies the locations according to remoteness.

Consultation on banks’ points of presence data


On 4 April 2023, APRA launched a consultation on the data it collects and publishes on physical banking service channels in Australia.

More information on this consultation can be found on the APRA website at: APRA launches public consultation on banks’ points of presence data.
