Anti-money Laundering Toolkit, 2nd edition
In Association with the Law Society's Risk and Compliance Service

Alison Matthews


Parliament has specifically included lawyers within the group of professionals required to take steps to prevent money launderers and terrorist financiers from making use of their services. Consequently, every provider of legal services must have effective anti-money laundering policies in place.

The Anti-Money Laundering Toolkit will provide you with practical know-how about combating money laundering and contains checklists, forms, policies and other templates to help you demonstrate compliance, all of which are contained on the accompanying CD-ROM to enable easy customisation.

This new second edition has been updated to take account of recent legislative and regulatory changes including:

  • The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017, which implement the EU Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive and the new CDD requirements
  • Amendments to the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 brought in by the Criminal Finances Act 2017 relating to Further Information Orders and changes to the moratorium period for Suspicious Activity Reports
  • A new risk assessment template that will allow you to assess organisation-wide risks, which is critical to implementation of the Money Laundering Regulations.
