OFT issues AML guidance to agents acting on behalf of companies

13th August 2013

Last week the OFT sent out important guidance on the Anti Money Laundering responsibilities for agents when selling property on behalf of a company.  The guidance confirms that agents should:-

  • Confirm the company’s existence
  • Identify the beneficial owners of the company (shareholders of 25% or more)
  • Verify the identity of those beneficial owners

The full guidance can be found here

With the ETSOS one stop solution complying with this latest guidance is made easy. Through the platform you can order and view a full Director/ Shareholder report and from the same screen run instant AML checks against the beneficial owners.

Add to this our other  pre-sale products, which help ensure you do not fall foul of the Consumer Protection Regulations (CPRs), ETSOS  is your complete compliance partner.
