Legislation relating to Money Laundering
Money Laundering Regulations 2007 / The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002
The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 apply to 5 business sectors, namely:
- Estate Agency Businesses
- Money Service Businesses
- High-Value Dealers
- Accountancy Service Providers
- Trust or Company Service Providers
The regulations were created to ensure that all firms have a risk assessment in place and conduct comprehensive client due diligence, as well as monitoring clients compliance with the regulations. More information can be found in this summary of key points.
The Proceeds of Crime Act 2000 allows for the 'civil recovery' or confiscation of the proceeds from any crime related activity.
“Customer due diligence measures” means—
(a) Identifying the customer and verifying the customer’s identity on the basis of documents, data or information obtained from a reliable and independent source;
(b) Identifying, where there is a beneficial owner who is not the customer, the beneficial owner and taking adequate measures, on a risk-sensitive basis, to verify his identity so that the relevant person is satisfied that he knows who the beneficial owner is, including, in the case of a legal person, trust or similar legal arrangement, measures to understand the ownership and control structure of the person, trust or arrangement; and
(c) Obtaining information on the purpose and intended nature of the business relationship.
