AML supervision

We have an important role as the largest accountancy professional body supervisor in the UK, supervising around 11,000 firms. Our strategy is to provide robust anti-money laundering supervision through a risk-based regime, focussing our efforts on firms where the risk that they will be used to enable money laundering is highest. Money laundering is the process by which the profits of illegal activities are disguised and made to appear legitimate. The impact of money laundering is devastating – it’s a crime that funds other serious crimes such as modern slavery, drugs trafficking, fraud, corruption and terrorism.
