star this property answer text <p>The Money Laundering Regulations 2017 are clear that all relevant persons (such as banks) must apply customer due diligence (CDD) measures if the person establishes a business relationship (regulation 27). Whilst CDD measures include conducting ongoing monitoring of a business relationship, as outlined in my previous answer, the extent of the measures taken must reflect the risk assessment carried out by the relevant person under regulation 18(1) and its assessment of the level of risk arising in any particular case. Therefore, if a customer is deemed low risk, the extent of ongoing CDD measures would be tailored to that risk assessment and minimum monitoring would be expected.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government’s priority has been to ensure a smooth and orderly withdrawal from the EU with a deal as soon as possible. The government has reached agreement with the EU on an extension until October 31<sup>st</sup> at the latest, with the option to leave earlier as soon as a deal is ratified. However, “No Deal” remains the legal default at the end of the extension period if a deal cannot be reached. As a responsible government we have been preparing for this possibility for almost three years to minimise any disruption in the event of no deal. The Treasury and the Bank of England together have all the tools of fiscal and monetary policy available to us, including the fiscal headroom the Chancellor has held in reserve.</p><p> </p> more like this
