Course Aims and Objectives

This introductory AML course for accountants and tax advisers is available to watch right now.

The Money Laundering Regulations 2017 require you:

  • to make all “relevant” staff aware of the law relating to money laundering and terrorist financing; and
  • to give them regular training in how to recognise and deal with suspicious activities.

This course will meet the first requirement and provide the initial training in recognising and dealing with suspicious activities.
The course also includes an anti-money laundering test at the end to quiz the user's knowledge of the regulations. Users can also print a certificate on completion, enabling you to evidence their anti-money laundering training.

Who Should Attend

 Since “relevant” staff will include anyone who may encounter suspicious activity we recommend that ALL principals and staff in the firm go through this training. We also recommend that it is included in the induction programme for all new employees in the firm.
