Final Anti-Money Laundering Guidance for the Accountancy Sector Published

By Andy Holton

CCAB (The Consultative Committee of Accounting Bodies) has published new guidance for all entities providing audit, accountancy, tax advisory, insolvency or related services such as trust and company services, by way of business.

The guidance has been updated for the 2017 Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Regulations and is approved by HM Treasury. It has also been adopted by the UK accountancy AML supervisory bodies. The guidance covers the prevention of money laundering and the countering of terrorist financing.

The guidance can be found here.

The SWAT AML guidance was recently updated based on the draft version so we will of course be updating this as soon as possible to the final version. We do not expect there to be any significant changes made to the recent update. We will also be updating the training courses included in AML subscriptions now that the final guidance is published.
