Anti-Money Laundering 2021: An essential update for insolvency professionals

Anti-money laundering training












Everyone working in the insolvency profession must be made aware of the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) legislation and of situations which may present heightened risks of money laundering or terrorist financing activity.

Not only is it a legal requirement to receive appropriate training in these areas, your training should be refreshed annually in order to protect yourself and your firm from possible exploitation as a professional enabler.

Written specifically for insolvency professionals by a licensed practitioner with over 25 years’ experience, this training provides useful and practical information to assist you in countering the AML risks that insolvency practitioners face in their daily work.

CPD Learning Outcomes

In this vital annual update on the UK’s anti-money laundering regime, we focus on pitfalls around Customer Due Diligence for insolvency practitioners, the heightened AML risks we face as we emerge from the coronavirus pandemic and refresh your knowledge of the possible offences that can be unwittingly committed under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

With billions of pounds having been expended in supporting UK businesses by HM Treasury, this training will examine what this may mean in terms of your Suspicious Activity Reporting obligations and keep you abreast of the latest guidance from AML Supervisors and the National Crime Agency.
