HMRC ML supervision

Email from HMRC

Didn't find your answer?

Hi 

I got the below email from HMRC, but I am already supervised by my Accountancy body. Anyone know how to contact them to tell them this so I don't have to have HMRC as the supervisory body or have them thinking I am not supervised? When I try to login to their link, it says I do not have access.

 

Your Anti Money Laundering Online Supervision account shows that you do not have risk assessments, written policies, controls or processes in place to help protect your business from being used for money laundering and terrorist financing. You have previously been sent secure communication messages alerting you of this.
As a registered business with HMRC, you have a regulatory obligation to have these in place. If a compliance check is done on your business and you do not have these in place, you will be issued with a penalty.
If you already have these documents in place, but have not updated your online account to confirm this, you need to do so.
If you don’t have these documents in place, you must prepare them and then update your online account to confirm this to avoid penalties.
Update your account by logging into your Anti Money Laundering Supervision account on GOV​.UK and ticking the risk assessment and policies/procedures questions. You do not need to send us copies unless requested to.
Go to GOV​.UK and search 'register or renew your money laundering supervision with HMRC'. You’ll need the Government Gateway User ID and Password that you used when you registered.

I had one of these and I have just had another email confirming it was sent in error.
What a shambles!

I trust they are reporting themselves to the Data Protection authorities!

Yes I got both e-mails - not to my business account but to my personal e-mail address. A complete shambles and totally embarrassing for HMRC.

I don’t think HMRC are capable of being embarrassed.

Here is your opportunity to disobey HMRC with impunity ... do NOT delete that (original) email.
Keep it somewhere safe (e.g. archived) along with your other family heirlooms ... it may come in useful some day!
