Accountants offered anti-money laundering feedback

Seminar organised by The Serious Organised Crime Agency

Accountants will be have the opportunity to get feedback on anti-money
laundering and anti-terrorism measures, after the
Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA)
announced it will host a seminar targeted directly at accountants.

The seminar follows HM Treasury
issuing its draft
Money
Laundering Regulations 2007 for consultation.

From mid-December 2007 all practicing accountants will be subject to new
regulations following the implementation of the EU 3rd Directive in member
states’ legislation.

Indications are that accounting institutes will become self-regulatory
bodies.

The seminar will be held at Chartered Accountants’ Hall in the City of London
on Wednesday 28 February
