If you handle money or assets, i.e. your business accepts cash payments of €15,000 or more (or equivalent in any currency) in a single or linked transaction in exchange for goods; you need to register with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) for supervision under the Money Laundering Regulations (MLRs).
The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 came into effect in the UK on 15th December 2007 and they cover a variety of business types. If your business is covered by the regulations, you need to make sure that your legal obligations under the regulation are met and complied with. HMRC are active in enforcing Money Laundering Regulations (MLRs) and many businesses are currently receiving costly civil penalties and even criminal prosecutions for failing to comply with the regulations.
HMRC have stated that the period of educating businesses as to their obligations is over and that non-compliance will now be dealt with by civil penalties and/or criminal prosecution. There has been a significant increase in MLR penalties and you must therefore act now to ensure you are compliant and protect your business.
