unstar this property answer text <p>Individuals setting up a company must provide information on who ultimately owns and controls the company and keep this information up to date, in line with the requirements of the People with Significant Control register. It can assist law enforcement in their investigations of alleged criminal behaviour, including money laundering. Companies House carries out a number of checks on all information received, ensuring it is valid, complete, and in compliance with company filing requirements. When it detects or receives intelligence relating to suspicious actions, including possible money laundering, Companies House will report the information to the relevant enforcement body. The UK’s anti-money laundering regime is currently being evaluated by the Financial Action Task Force, which will report in due course. Following this evaluation, the Government will consider areas where the anti-money laundering framework can be improved.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Since 2010, over 9700 people in England and Wales have been successfully convicted for money laundering offences – most of these are under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) which provides for various money laundering offences, including where an individual knows or suspects they may be facilitating money laundering or seeks to conceal criminal property. The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 and the subsequent update, the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 (MLRs) focus on ensuring regulated businesses put in place controls to guard against money laundering or terrorist finance. Supervisors are appointed by the Treasury to monitor compliance with these regulations and primarily use a range of supervisory tools to promote compliance, including warning notices, action plans, financial penalties or withdrawal of the right to practice. The vast majority of breaches of the MLRs are remedied or penalised using these supervisory tools. Since 2010 there were over 3,539 fines issued on firms and individuals across the regime.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government has made significant progress in developing our response to the threat from money laundering. We want to ensure that the full force of government can be used against criminals and kleptocrats who seek to use the UK as a haven for their illicit funds.</p><p>As part of the Criminal Finances Act, Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs) were introduced on 31 January 2018. UWOs are an important addition to existing investigation powers under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and compel individuals to explain the sources of their wealth where it is suspected that their lawful income would be insufficient to obtain specified property and they are a non-EEA politically exposed person or suspected of being involved in serious crime. Three UWOs have been applied for, and all granted, since the UWO power came into force in January. The Home Office works with law enforcement agencies to encourage the use of UWOs.</p><p>The Act made it easier to seize the funds of criminals and those suspected of financing terrorism from bank accounts, and introduced powers to prevent the laundering of money through works of art, precious metals and stones, and casino chips. The Act also contains powers to deal with the failure to prevent tax evasion.</p><p>The Home Office has established a suspicious activity report (SARs) Reform Programme, working with reporters, law enforcement and regulators, to design an effective regime that ensures that there is no safe space to move, use or hide illicit finances.</p><p>The Government has also announced the setting up of the National Economic Crime Centre (NECC) in the National Crime Agency. The NECC will be hosted in the NCA and will be staffed by partners from across the law enforcement community (including the NCA, Financial Conduct Authority, HMRC, City of London Police and the Serious Fraud Office) and from the Private sector. It will build on the work already done by these organisations to enable economic crime is tackled in a more coordinated way</p>
