Why you should do a smartsearch not an anti-money laundering check

An Anti-Money Laundering check or AML check is something all businesses at risk of money laundering must complete on all customers before they enter into a business relationship with them. Rules vary across the world in terms of which businesses must complete checks, but in the US, UK and Europe, all businesses working in financial services must complete AML checks on customers - this includes banks, buildings societies and other financial institutions. Those working in other at-risk sectors including legal, property, investment and finance – must also run AML checks on their clients.

But what are they? Why are they important? And what tools can accountants put in place to protect themselves as they achieve them?
