Anti Money Laundering

With the Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive having been enacted in in June 2017 the regulatory environment has never been more challenging. Within this regulatory environment Red Flag Alert is working with businesses to ensure its data is supporting their AML processes in the most efficient way.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) policies, which include ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) checks, play a pivotal role in preventing money laundering, identity theft and financial crime such as fraud. Across all industries and sectors, AML compliance is a legal requirement.

Our AML service has been developed in conjunction with Begbies Traynor Group PLC and GB Group PLC: a world leader in AML services and ID verification. The development process was extensive and the result is the most comprehensive AML solution in the market today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does my business need to run Anti-Money Laundering checks?

Now is the time to act! International efforts to tackle corruption are gaining momentum; the Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD) is the latest directive in a process driven by the intergovernmental Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the EU and UK lawmakers to tackle terrorist financing and money laundering.

The scope of businesses required to run AML checks is widening. Banking, payments, lending, insurance, crypto, investment, gambling, high-risk corporates, solicitors, accountants, tax advisers, insolvency practitioners, estate agents, letting agents, surveyors and dealers trading in high-cost products fall under the legislation.
