About this session

Anti-money laundering (AML) compliance continues to be a burden for some accountants.

And as demonstrated by the Economic Plan 2, the government intends to continue and reinforce the drive to make more rigorous the supervision of accountants, lawyers and other professionals within the scope of money laundering regulations. 

This will likely involve increased pressure on the professional bodies and HMRC to show results in their supervisory activities - and that will translate into more penalties for accountants and others.

This comes as AML non-compliance has become a common theme in recent disciplinary reports, such as a recent exclusion of an ACCA who lied about their AML policy and an ‘overwhelmed’ sole practitioner who was hit with a combined financial penalty and costs of £23,840 for withholding AML evidence.

On this episode of Any Answers Live, AML experts David Winch and Della Hudson take a look at the current landscape of AML and SARs, and will answer YOUR questions on this much scrutinised area of compliance. 

By attending this episode you will learn:

  • How to ensure you comply with money laundering regulations
  • How to write effective suspicious activity reports
  • How to spot red flags with your clients
  • What is considered a high risk client
