The requirements of the directive and FTR must come into effect through national law by 26 June in line with Article 67 of the directive and Article 27 of the FTR. These negotiations are still ongoing. The government intends to transpose 4MLD in full by 26 June and will separately consult on the amended directive once it has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union and has come into force.
Until exit negotiations are concluded, the UK remains a full member of the European Union and all the rights and obligations of EU membership remain in force.
During this period the government will continue to negotiate, implement and apply EU legislation. Who is covered by the directive?
Where there is little risk of money laundering or terrorist financing, the government has the discretion to exempt some persons engaging in financial activity on an occasional or very limited basis, from the requirements under the directive.
The vast majority of respondents to the consultation agreed with this limit, particularly given that all other criteria such as the financial activity not being the main activity of such persons, the financial activity being limited on a transaction basis, and given that a set of sectors are already excluded from exemption.
Due diligence requirements and reliance The obliged entities that fall within scope of the directive will need to apply different levels of due diligence measures to manage the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing.
Many respondents suggested general factors which would necessitate the application of CDD to existing customers to be set out in legislation.
This is reflected in the draft regulations. Respondents generally felt that more detailed examples should be set out in sector-specific guidance and determined by firms themselves.
The government has therefore decided to include a summary of the risk factors set out in Annex 1 of the directive in the new regulations, in line with a risk-based approach. More detailed examples for different sectors can then be set out in sector-specific guidance.
The government requested views on what changes in circumstances should warrant obliged entities applying CDD measures to their existing customers. This would become apparent at the point of a new transaction, but also if a customer informed the business, or for example if mail was returned to sender a change in marital status was thought to be relevant if the customer married a PEP.
If it led to a name change there would be associated re-verification, but this would not necessarily link to increased risk of money laundering a change of address could affect risk if it involved moving to a higher risk jurisdiction, or potentially out of their current area, or to a different price range for companies, a change in the corporate structure, or significant change in beneficial ownership a change in vocation or promotion at work for a customer could affect their money laundering risk, for example if the customer became a PEP.
However, some respondents also highlighted that information on vocation was more burdensome to request than information verifying identity and address.
It may be more relevant for Source of Wealth or Source of Fund checks or, for example, for private banking where ownership of property changes, or where mortgages are paid off quickly or there is a change in the frequency of payments a combination of two or more changes at the same time were more likely to trigger CDD or EDD The current Money Laundering Regulations provide threshold values for CDD in euros directly from the directive as opposed to pounds sterling.
We will continue this approach in the updated Money Laundering Regulations. This means that any reference to an amount in euros should be considered as also a reference to an equivalent amount in any other currency and that the equivalent in sterling or any other currency on a particular day of a sum expressed in euros is determined by converting the sum in euros into its equivalent in sterling or that other currency using the London closing exchange rate for the euro and the relevant currency for the previous working day.
There were mixed views in response, although a number of respondents supported guidance confirming that one-off business formation constitutes a business relationship.
The National Risk Assessment NRA 5 highlights that the nature of the services offered by TCSPs means that they do not see the activity of the company once it is formed, unless they subsequently provide further services to that customer. For the TCSPthe onset of the transaction i.
Therefore having adequate understanding of the regulations, and of the indicators that trusts or companies are being established to facilitate money laundering or terrorist financing, is an important preventative measure for TCSPs.
The government has therefore set out in the new regulations that when a trust or company service provider is asked to form a company, this is to be treated as a business relationship whether or not the formation is the only transaction being carried out for that customer.
The government is interested in views on its approach to one-off company formation, including under which circumstances it might be appropriate, as part of the risk-based approach, for a trust or company service provider to apply simplified due diligence where it concerns the formation of a single company.
These include considering types of customers, geographic areas, and particular products, services, transactions or delivery channels. The consultation also asked whether there were other factors or types of low risk situations which should be considered when deciding to apply Simplified Due Diligence.
There were quite a lot of firms in favour of removing the existing prescriptive list of SDD exemptions currently in the MLRs on the basis that this would promote a risk-based approach, and because SDD should be responsive to emerging risks, as set out in the NRA and other sector and firm level risk assessments.
They did not think that there should be an exhaustive list, and wanted to avoid a tick-box approach. Generally these respondents supported having further illustrative examples or a non-exhaustive list in guidance underpinning the regulations, which some highlighted would be easier to keep up-to-date than a list in the regulations.Apart from job opportunities, we provide you a platform for your career development.
