Money Laundering Regulations 2017

In common with all professional practices and financial institutions, we are required to obtain verification of your identity and address to comply with the Money Laundering Regulations, if you are a new client or if we have not taken instructions from you for some time.

You will be required to provide this information, which we will need to check, before we are able to proceed with your matter. For most people this will mean bringing in a current passport or photographic driving licence, verification of your address and date of birth. As part of the verification process we may use electronic reference agencies to search sources of information relating to you.

The Regulations also require us to identify ultimate beneficial owners and shareholders, as follows:

Limited Companies:

Partnerships:

Trust:

There may be occasions when we will require further information and evidence of identity depending on the circumstances.

In order to minimise any delay caused by the need to comply with these Regulations, please ensure we have the required documents and information as soon as possible.
