What is anti-money laundering?
Money Laundering is the act of a third party or organisation reinvesting money from an illegal activity into another financial transaction or business in order to 'clean' the funds. The Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD) is the latest directive in a process driven by intergovernmental lawmakers to tackle the issues surrounding money laundering. The scope of businesses required to run KYC and AML checks is ever widening but is predominantly businesses that work within the financial arena and manage large transactions of money, trading in high-cost products. Those that fall into the legislation include banking, payments, lending, insurance, crypto, investment, gambling, high-risk corporates, solicitors, accountants, tax advisers, insolvency practitioners, estate agents, letting agents and surveyors.

Anti-money laundering or Know Your Customer (KTC) – What do I need
In order to understand the level of reporting that your organisation needs, let’s clear up the difference between Know Your Customer checks and Anti Money Laundering.
Anti-money laundering is an umbrella term for the checks that a business must implement in order to ascertain that the third party is acting legitimately in the transferring of money. Know Your Customer is one of the components that can be applied to verify a client’s identity. It is a basic – but reliable – check of third-party identity.
For more detailed scrutiny, we offer two AML services – standard and enhanced.
