Money laundering is a rapidly growing area of the law that impacts both individuals and companies. Severe financial crime has led to a complicated legal framework and increased multi-agency cooperation in investigation and prosecution. The law imposes heavy fines for the offence and requires businesses to have systems and controls in place to prevent money laundering and to report suspicious actions to the authorities.
Even the most seasoned and conservative professional or business person can unknowingly become a money-laundering conduit. These situations have been exacerbated by the provisions of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002 and the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005, and HMRC and the FCA have become increasingly draconian in their anti-money laundering requirements.
This can result in penalties and prosecution if not met. This is critical since a money-laundering inquiry or refusal to report suspected money laundering can have severe ramifications for your professional/business reputation, financial condition, and, if criminal charges are brought, your liberty.
Our team Money Laundering Lawyers UK, deal with various types of money laundering cases
Money laundering is principally governed by the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) 2002 and the Money Laundering Regulations in the United Kingdom.
The EU is also working on new guidelines to amend the anti-money laundering directive, which will most likely include a need for all EU nations to establish new central registers containing information on corporations’ ultimate beneficial owners.
Since its inception in 2002, the Proceeds of Crime Act has been used severely by both the government and the courts.
