Lifecycle’s live webinar, which will be delivered by tax expert and author Steve O’Neill who will examine what the introduction of this new European AML legislation means for accountants, the changes we have seen and those that are still to come.

  • What's new
  • Update on policies, controls and procedures
  • Staff screening requirements
  • Criminal Finances Act
  • The new corporate offence of 'a failure to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion'
  • The proposed new supervisory regime for professional bodies

Lifecycle’s Rik Heap said: “Accountants are at risk from potential clients who are in a position to launder money or handle illicit funds, so it’s crucial that they keep fully up to date and compliant with the changes.

“By attending this webinar, accountants will be able to identify any potential weaknesses in their existing procedures whilst getting advice on new policies that may be required.”
