Supporting Guidance: business records checks: at the visit: money laundering regulations

Money laundering is the process by which criminally obtained money and other assets (criminal property) are exchanged for ‘clean’ money or other assets with no obvious link to their criminal origins.

You are not expected to be experts in this field or actively go looking for such cases during visits.

However, you should discuss any cases involving potential Money Laundering with your manager. (This content has been withheld because of exemptions in the Freedom of Information Act 2000)  CH4021710
