The results of a search for charged Higgs bosons are presented. The analysis is based on proton-proton collision data recently collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, using ttbar events with a tau lepton in the final state. The data are consistent with the background from Standard Model processes. Assuming branching ratio BR(H+ -> taunu) = 100%, this leads to upper limits on the branching fraction BR(t -> bH+).
