All accountants must comply with the Money Laundering Regulations and have in place appropriate anti-money laundering (AML) policies, procedures and training regimes. What's more, these must all be tailored to the risks that the firm faces and indeed the different risks in different service lines or locations. We can provide a variety of services to help you in your compliance with Money Laundering Regulations, together with related requirements such as prevention of the corporate facilitation of tax evasion and bribery and corruption.
Our consulting services:
- Assistance with writing your firm-wide risk assessment
- Reviews of your AML policies and procedures or firm-wide risk assessment
- Assessment of the effectiveness of your AML policies and procedures
- Technical queries regarding compliance with regulatory and reporting obligations
- Public or in-house courses or workshops to ensure that staff and partners properly understand their obligations – if they don't then the firm has committed an offence.
- Courses or workshops for your Money Laundering Reporting Officer(s) – as these people should receive tailored CPD appropriate to their role.
- If you are looking for something more imaginative then a typical presentation, then we can work with you to design workshops or "brain-friendly" training sessions. These involve much more audience participation and require delegates to work together to increase engagement and to share knowledge between different team members. They can result in a more powerful learning experience for delegates with the result that staff and partners have a better understanding and retain more of the topics covered than in a traditional course.
- If you need webinars or e-learning to allow more flexible access to the training, we can work with you to design and provide something appropriate.
- All our courses are presented by experienced and engaging speakers who have a thorough knowledge of their topic areas.
