HMRC spot checks, make sure your processes are compliant

16th July 2015

The National Association of Estate Agents says HMRC have been making unscheduled visits to individual agency offices to check on their compliance with anti-money laundering procedures. 

“We wholeheartedly support HMRC in conducting these checks and in the wider battle to fight the criminals. We also want to ensure that NAEA agents are the best in the business, but understand that with so many other priorities it’s easy to let your knowledge slip, and even the most diligent of agents need refreshers now and again” says a statement issued by the association.It is believed that the visits were not triggered by suspicions of illegal activity or flouting of the approved anti-money laundering processes but are part of an ongoing clampdown by HMRC.

To help you understand your obligations and the processes you need to have in place we have created the following guide:
