Below are the key main compliance areas but of course we have many, please feel free to contact us and ask a member of the team if you have any quesions.
Anti Money Laundering
All accountants must comply with onerous duties imposed by the Proceeds of Crime Act, the Terrorism Act and the Money Laundering Regulations (the “Anti Money Laundering Legislation”), which are intended to inhibit the activities of terrorists and other criminals by denying them access to technical expertise. If we fail to perform these duties, we risk imprisonment.

However, if at any time, there appear to be grounds to suspect (even if we do not actually suspect) that your instructions relate to ‘criminal property’, we are obliged to make a report to the Serious Organised Crime agency (SOCA), but we are prohibited from telling you that we have done so.
