AML stands for Anti-Money Laundering. Any company that deals with financial transactions must comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Compliance strategies. Not only is this to ensure you adhere to AML regulations, it's also best practice for any business.
AML checks need to include an array of procedures and should also include Know Your Customer (KYC) and Know Your Business (KYB) methods to help prevent and detect financial crime early.
An Ultimate Beneficial Owner is a person that is the ultimate beneficiary of funds or assets. The exact definition of a UBO varies across jurisdictions but it is generally defined as an individual who holds a minimum of 10-25% of capital or voting rights within the entity.
Complex corporate structures are often used as a cloak to disguise financial crime. Understanding who are the Ultimate Beneficial Owners of an organisation is key to assessing the validity and compliancy of an organisation and identifying any fraudulent activity which may be occurring within this organisation.
Any company that deals with financial transactions must comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Compliance strategies. In the UK this covers anyone regulated by the FCA and includes: Financial Institutions, Credit Unions, Accountants, Solicitors, Tax Advisors, Estate Agents, Gaming companies, High Value Goods providers.
KYB stands for Know Your Business - it is about understanding exactly who your business customers are. KYB forms part of the AML (Anti-Money Laundering) procedures and legislation and is vital in making sure your company is compliant.
