Anti-Money Laundering: The Basics

March 23, 2021

Anti-Money Laundering: The Basics, developed collaboratively with ICAEW, helps professional accountants enhance their understanding of how money laundering works, the risks they face, and what they can do to mitigate these risks and make a positive contribution to the public interest.

The series, with its focus on accessibility and ease of use, will be a resource for Small and Medium Practices (SMPs,) and accountants less familiar with AML, while also providing guidance for those looking for a quick refresher or reference.
