Last updated: 08 Mar, 2022

TaxCalc’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Products helps accountants, bookkeepers and other finance professionals meet their obligations under the Money Laundering Regulations. The regulations require systems and controls to be put in place, which are capable of:

  • Assessing the risks to the firm
  • Performing client due diligence

  • Ongoing monitoring of clients

  • Ensuring staff are appropriately trained

  • Enabling staff to make an internal Suspicious Activity Report (SAR)

AML Centre provides a simple and effective hub for recording, storing and maintaining all evidence of those systems and controls to ensure firms are able to demonstrate compliance to their supervisory body, should they be required to do so.
