Money Laundering and Criminal Finances

Some might think that money laundering regulation is old news, but to ignore this fundamental weapon in the fight against financial crime and terrorist financing would be a mistake.
Compliance and Regulatory Expertise

Embedding an anti-fraud culture within your organisation is key to protecting it from becoming a victim of financial crime. An organisation’s workforce is its central line of defence, so ensuring that they understand and support the anti-fraud message is critical.

In January 2018, the Office for Professional Body Anti-Money Laundering Supervision was launched to work with all the UK’s AML supervisors to improve standards and strengthen cooperation with law enforcement.

Tenet is ready to support your organisation to update its policies and procedures to incorporate the changes brought about by the new Regulations.

Under Regulation 18 a risk assessment is required to identify and assess the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing that your organisation faces. This is something that Tenet can guide you through. Staff training is also an important part of the regime and this can also be provided by Tenet.

With respect to the Criminal Finances Act 2017, assessment needs to be taken by organisations to ensure adequate procedures are in place (similar to the Bribery Act 2010) so to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion.
