Introduction

Under the Proceeds of Crime Act, the MLRO has to tread a fine line between meeting their statutory obligation to disclose matters to the National Crime Agency in certain circumstances and risking a breach of client privilege by doing so inappropriately in others.

As the NCA's reporting guidelines have become steadily stricter the risks of reports being rejected or ignored have also increased.

This live broadcast session will explain what you need to know.

What You Will Learn

This live online session will cover:

  • When should you be ‘suspicious’ in the first place?
  • Why and when ‘authorised disclosures’ are required: the duty to disclose in some circumstances and the need to do so in others
  • The reasons for making a SARs report - do you need a statutory defence?
  • The complications of privilege - reasons not to disclose; what is a criminal purpose?
  • Obtaining a defence or consent - the reporting guidelines of the NCA
  • The range of NCA responses
  • How do you avoid tipping off?
  • The implications of Shah v HSBC
