Stay Ahead of HMRC’s Money Laundering Crackdown – Morning Session

Webinar recorded live on

The UK property market remains at a high risk of being used for laundering ‘dirty money’. So with HMRC ramping up ‘on-site’ inspections at agents’ offices, are you fully up-to-speed with your (Money Laundering Reporting Officer) MLRO duties and prepared for any potential scrutiny of your AML compliance?

In 2023 Estate Agents dominated the list of businesses not complying with the Money Laundering Regulations, receiving a total of £3.2M in fines. In many cases these could have been avoidable financial penalties and damage to their reputation.

We heard from one of UK’s leading property experts, Malcolm Driscoll, of FCS Compliance and had your MLRO questions answered plus gained insight into:

• The Roles and Responsibilities of the MLRO/Deputy MLRO/Nominated Officer
• An update on recent and initial ‘key’ findings of HMRC inspections
• The latest observations from the front line and what you should be aware of
