Anti-Money Laundering Policy & Procedures
As one of the leading company formation agent, which is a regulated activity, Business Tax Centre always adheres to rules & regulations. To aid compliance with the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 Business Tax Centre Limited has a company policy encompassing good ethical business practices.All in the regulated sector must comply with onerous duties imposed by the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, the Terrorism Act 2000 and the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 (the “Anti Money Laundering Legislation”), which are intended to inhibit the activities of terrorists and other criminals by denying them access to technical expertise. If we fail to perform these duties, we risk imprisonment.
Before we accept your instructions, we may need to obtain ‘satisfactory evidence’ to verify your identity. In certain circumstances, we may need to obtain evidence confirming the identities of third parties, the source of any funds or other property, the purpose of any instructions or any other matter. If you a regulated firm we will require details of your supervisory arrangements. We may also need to obtain such evidence after we have begun to act on your instructions. We may use electronic verification methods for this purpose.
We assume that our clients are honest and law abiding. However, if at any time, there appear to be grounds to suspect (even if we do not actually suspect) that your instructions relate to ‘criminal property’, we are obliged to make a report to the Serious Organised Crime agency (SOCA), but we are prohibited from telling you that we have done so. In such circumstances, we must not act on your instructions without consent from SOCA. If SOCA does not refuse consent within 7 working days we may continue to act. If SOCA issues a refusal within that time, we must not act for a further 31 days from the date of the refusal.
‘Criminal property’ is property in any legal form, whether money, real property, rights or any benefit derived from criminal activity. It does not matter who carried out the criminal activity or how removed the property is from the original crime. Even if you are honest in your dealings, if your property represents a benefit from someone else’s crime, we must still make a report. Activity is considered ‘criminal’ if it is a crime under UK law, no matter how trivial, and whether carried out in the UK or abroad. For example, tax evasion is a criminal offence but an honest mistake is not.
These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
