money laundering regulations 2017

what you need to know about the new regulations affecting banking, finance, legal and accountancy

With The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 now released, many legal and accountancy firms are having to act quickly to stay ahead of the new demands and ensure they are compliant. Already a tightly regulated sector, the new regulations have placed a level of scrutiny on the industry on a par with what financial service firms have faced since the crash in 2008.

Throughout this year, we have been covering many of the key issues that professional service firms will have to contend with now that the regulations have been enacted. From webinars and blogs to keynote talks at leading industry events, the encompass team have looked to make sure legal and accountancy practitioners are prepared.
