Solicitors and other professionals have come under scrutiny from law enforcement as so called ‘professional enablers’ assisting criminals to launderer and bury their proceeds of crime.

In 26 June 2017 the rules and regulations around money laundering and terrorist financing are changing.

By Autumn 2017 we are expecting a new Criminal Finances Act bringing in a new offence of facilitating tax evasion.

In readiness for these changes, we have arranged an update to help you ensure that you are already up to date and help you prepare for the changes.

All members are encouraged to attend this event which provides a valuable opportunity to learn of updates on AML/CTF compliance which includes the forthcoming 4th Money Laundering Directive, due to be implemented in June 2017, and the FATF Evaluation of the UK and its AML/CTF regime.

While all Money Laundering Reporting Officers are in particular encouraged to attend this event, every member should ensure they are aware of their personal statutory and professional obligations in respect of AML/CTF compliance and how this affects you and the conduct of your practice.

To confirm your attendance at this seminar please contact cpdbookings@lawsoc-ni.org
