EC 4th Money Laundering Directive & Implementing Legislation

Once again, significant changes are being made to the UK’s anti-money laundering regime.

Practitioners will be affected by, among other things, important changes to the identification of beneficial owners of trusts and companies, and the establishment of a register to record beneficial ownership of company shares.

The Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 (presently a Bill before Parliament) and new Money Laundering Regulations are anticipated to make these changes in autumn 2015.

What are the key changes to the EC 4th Directive on Money Laundering?
Are you complying with the new EC and UK requirements?
What is the meaning of “people with significant control”?
The purpose of this course is to make sure that all fee earners working in the regulated sector (solicitors, accountants, financial services providers) are ready for these changes when they come into force.
