Money Laundering Prevention

PREVENT MONEY LAUNDERING IN YOUR COMPANY

Money laundering is the set of mechanisms aimed to facilitate a legal appearance to goods or assets from illegal activities. In many cases, the laundering activity involves other companies that are not aware that they are being used for this purpose.

In response to growing concerns raised by the financial crime in this area, the regulations for the prevention of money laundering and the financing of terrorism established the preventive measures that certain companies must comply with, such as:

  • Financial entities.
  • Exchange offices and money orders.
  • Property developers and persons whose business activities include those of agency.
  • Casinos.
  • People who are engaged in the commission or brokerage in real state trading.
  • Professional dealers in jewels, precious stones or precious metals.
  • Professional dealers in works of art or antiques.
  • Notaries, Lawyers, Barristers, Statutory auditors, External accounts and Tax advisers.
  • Persons responsible for the management, operation and marketing of lotteries or other gambling activities.
  • Foundations and associations.
  • Persons engaged in the deposit, custody or professional transfer of funds or means of payment.
  • Service providers of virtual currency exchange for fiat currencies and custody providers of electronic wallets.

RISK ASSESSMENT REPORT

Why a risk assessment report?

The PBC/CFT risk report identifies and evaluates the risks that the company faces in the development of its business. It is the basis for designing the internal control procedures necessary to mitigate the risks.

The Regulation of Law 10/2010 requires all obliged subjects to carry out a documented analysis that reflects the risks they face based on their business relationships, clients, operations, etc.

Review

The risk analysis will be reviewed periodically and, in any case, when a significant change is verified that could influence the risk profile of the obliged subject. In fact, the report itself must include the procedures for reviewing and updating necessary.

Why us?

At CORE BUSINESS CONSULTING we are experts in risk assessment reports. Our auditor team has carried out risk analysis for years and for companies of recognized national and international prestige in various sectors.

Given their importance and significance, the PBC/CFT policies and procedures will be approved by the management body of the obliged subject.

In the case of obliged subjects whose annual turnover exceeds EUR 50 million or whose general annual balance excedes EUR 43 million, the procedures for the implementation of policies to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing may be approved by the internal control Committee.

Manual update

As a consequence of the modification of the Law in September 2018, it is necessary to update the PBC/CFT Manual Procedures of the companies. Likewise, the Manuals must be a living document, that is to say, they must be periodically updated to reflect the profile and current operations of the company.
