Anti Money Laundering Required Check (AML)

Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, Proceeds of Crime, Transfer of Funds, Bribery Act, Financial Sanctions.

It is required that we undertake due care and diligence to ensure that we conduct business only with reputable customers involved in lawful activities undertaken in good faith and to create an effective Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regime throughout our business activities which are regulated by HMRC and to adhere to all current money laundering and terrorist financing prevention, proceeds of crime, bribery, transfer of funds, policing and crime regulations and legislation.

As a regulated profession, we must carry out due diligence on all our clients to confirm their identity. In addition to traditional methods in which you are required to produce a photographic Identity and proof of address documents, we shall also be using an electronic verification system. This system allows us to verify you from basic details using electronic data, however, it is not a credit check of any kind, so it will not affect you or your credit history.

We will undertake a search on all Vendors and Purchasers with SMARTSEARCH (or other Providers) to verify your identity and address. SMARTSEARCH may check the details you supply against particulars on any database (public or otherwise) to which they have access, to ensure that we maintain Anti-Money Laundering/Counter Terrorist Financing procedures. They may also use your details in the future to assist other companies for verification purposes. A record of the search will be retained.
