Due Diligence Documentation
Company Due Diligence and Anti-Money Laundering documentation
In the UK, the law establishes that the directors of companies for third parties and trustees, as well as banks, construction companies and other subjects operating in the financial and legal fields, obtain proof of the identity of their clients. The reason is that professionals who manage assets on behalf of their clients can easily be used by criminals in order to launder money of illicit origin.
Therefore we are obliged to observe the anti-money laundering regulations and, in particular, to verify the identity and domicile of all new customers (both natural and legal persons).
As a result, you will be asked to provide us with a copy of all the company’s chain of directors of one of the documents listed in category 1 below, a copy of one of the documents in category 2 and all the documents listed in category 3.
