'The AML system is easy to follow and simple to use. The monthly newsletter is an excellent way of maintaining AML awareness as well as keeping up to date. The training webinars are excellent to keep the whole firm up to date and cost effective. The help sheets are also very easy to use.'

'The ICAEW Complete AML System is easy to use and very clear. I like the flowchart approach to risk and the forms are clear and concise. With the endorsement of ICAEW and Mercia incorporating SWAT we can be confident there are no gaps in the system. Given the price, buying the system was a no brainer!'
