Around the world, anti-money laundering regulations and legislation have become one of the weapons of choice of governments that are fighting global terrorism and criminality. Within the UK, the latest regulation, The Money Laundering Regulations 2003, have extended the range of businesses covered by the Proceeds of Crime Act to include solicitors, lawyers, estate agents and, in effect, all companies involved in consultancy or business services. The complexity of the new law and the lack of any case law asks more questions about the responsibilities of these companies and their liabilities.

Doug Hopton's highly practical guide explains the basis of international law, regulations and standards in this area and how they effect businesses and provides down-to-earth advice on the basic rules of good business management: know your client, know your business (and your client's business), which will help companies understand what procedures to establish, and how and when to report suspicious activity. The author explains the basis of money laundering and how it works, along with the development of the law and regulations around the world, and how other countries' laws can have an effect on companies in the UK.
