Anti-Money Laundering Requirements
From 1 July 2018, the Anti Money-Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 requires us to assess the risk we face from clients who may want to use our business to launder money or finance terrorism.
To help us make that assessment, the law requires us to collect and verify information from clients about a number of things (including identity and proof of address information) – the above legislation calls this “Customer Due Diligence” (CDD).
Please read the information sheet – “Why we need to ask you for information“. It contains more detail on what information we must have from you before we undertake work for you. In some cases, we will need to ask you for further information, but if we do, we will contact you separately about that.
