All accountants, including tax advisors and insolvency practitioners, need to comply with their obligations under the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 helping to prevent, recognise and report any money laundering suspicions.

The Money Laundering Regulations 2017 have now been in force for the last seven years and all firms should have everything in place to cover key areas including:

  • Who is the MLRO and MLCO
  • Have risk assessments at all levels being undertaken
  • Is CDD being completed correctly and do you have measures in place for enhanced or simplified due diligence
  • Do you have the correct knowledge of the sanctions regime
  • Is all of your documentation in place in policies, controls and procedures

Using the guidance from the CCAB, this in-person seminar is full of practical tips, advice and case studies helping to ensure you are fully compliant.
