star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to ensuring the UK is a hostile environment for illicit finance and has taken significant steps to tackle the threat of money laundering. The Government tightened the requirements on AML supervisors in the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 and legislated to establish an oversight body for professional body supervisors (the Office for Professional Body AML Supervision or OPBAS) in December 2017.</p><p> </p><p>TCSPs undertaking business in the UK must be supervised by either the FCA, HMRC or a professional body<em>. </em>They are subject to the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 which strengthened the requirements on TCSPs by introducing a fitness and propriety test on beneficial owners, officers and managers, by requiring TCSPs to be registered with either the FCA or HMRC and by requiring them to undertake customer due diligence checks when forming a company, whether or not the formation is the only transaction being carried out for that customer. At an international level, the UK works with international partners and through the Financial Action Task Force to drive up global standards of supervision and enforcement.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to making the UK a hostile place for illicit finance. Knowing who ultimately owns and controls a company is an important part of the global fight against corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing. It can assist law enforcement in their investigations, and additionally act as a deterrent. Our public register of company beneficial ownership, the People with Significant Control register, went live in June 2016. In June last year, this requirement was extended to Scottish Limited Partnerships. Last year we further strengthened our anti-money laundering regime through the Money Laundering Regulations 2017, bringing our system into line with the international standards as set by the Financial Action Task Force.</p><p> </p> more like this
