Information and guidance on requesting a DAML

A DAML can be requested when a person has suspicion that property they intend to deal with is criminal in some way and that by dealing with it, they risk committing an offence under POCA (2002). For example if a firm wishes to transfer client money to another account and they have concerns over the source of the funds.

There is more information on the NCA website including:
