Corporations Act 2001
A Court may order a person (the liable person ) to compensate another person (including a corporation), a registered scheme or a notified foreign passport fund for damage suffered by the person, scheme or fund if:
(a) the liable person has contravened subsection 798H(1) (complying with market integrity rules) or 981M(1) (complying with client money reporting rules); and
(b) the damage resulted from the contravention.
The order must specify the amount of compensation.
Note: An order may be made under this subsection whether or not a declaration of contravention has been made under section 1317E .
Subsection (1) does not apply in relation to a contravention by the operator of a licensed market acting in that capacity. Damage includes profits 1317HB(3)
In determining the damage suffered by a person, scheme or fund for the purposes of making a compensation order, include profits made by any person resulting from the contravention.

If the responsible entity for a registered scheme is ordered to compensate the scheme, the responsible entity must transfer the amount of the compensation to the scheme property. If anyone else is ordered to compensate the scheme, the responsible entity may recover the compensation on behalf of the scheme.
If the operator of a notified foreign passport fund is ordered to compensate the fund, the operator must transfer the amount of the compensation to the fund property. If anyone else is ordered to compensate the fund, the operator may recover the compensation on behalf of the fund.
