SmartSearch launches high-risk country report

SmartSearch launches high-risk country report

The new reporting tool instantly checks all clients that the regulated business has previously run searches on, and returns matches for those that have a connection to the specified country.

The aim is to support those companies looking to quickly and efficiently evaluate their existing client bases following sanctions placed on a number of Russian individuals and businesses.

In addition, the search provides a list of all UK business searches on companies where a corporate structure is returned and an entity within the structure that is operated in a high-risk country.  

“With the potential reputational and financial damage that could ensue for those working with clients connected to Russia or Belarus, regulated businesses have rightly been reviewing their existing clients.” Martin Cheek, managing director of SmartSearch explained.

“This new product will give businesses peace of mind that they aren’t working with anyone they shouldn’t be. The information will be provided quickly and efficiently, and will also be regularly updated for ongoing monitoring purposes.”

As a one-stop-shop for anti-money laundering and protecting against fraud, SmartSearch is constantly innovating to protect regulated businesses. Working with the world’s best data suppliers, SmartSearch is the only company to offer the breadth of multiple checks, all in one place.

SmartSearch also is the only organisation with the ability to verify individuals and companies in the UK and internationally. The service is available on a single platform via a browser or API, with full sanction, politically exposed person, and ongoing monitoring to guarantee AML compliance.

Over recent years, but particularly throughout the pandemic, the terms digitalisation and innovation have been used frequently and synonymously, with an underlying assumption that accountancy firms should be doing both. But what are they? Why are they important? And what tools can accountants put in place to protect themselves as they achieve them?

Perpetual Know Your Customer (pKYC) - Why should you move to a dynamic AML program?

Perpetual Know Your Customer (pKYC) - also known as continual KYC - is the ongoing process by which businesses continuously update customer information as a part of their risk management strategy and is a step on from a standard Know Your Customer (KYC) process. The latest concept within customer due diligence, pKYC is gaining traction because, not only does it offer a much more dynamic and secure risk management solution now but will automatically evolve as clients’ circumstances change thereby reducing risk and the level of period work required by regulated firms, which is why it is fast establishing itself as the future of KYC.
