Anti-money laundering registration


#1

Hi
I contacted MLRCIT@hmrc.gov.uk about registering for anti-money laundering since because I provide a small amount of bookkeeping for one client. I received confirmation that currently I do not provide the level of accounting tasks to be registered.
Any suggestions on how I should convey this on my website?
Thanks
Angela

Hi

I wouldn’t advertise it, only because under the registration we aren’t supposed to advertise these services. By saying you have registered, it could be misconstrued that you do supply those services, and it could work against you.

You can always talk about it when you speak with clients.

I don’t advertise mine either because of this.

Thanks
Jacquie

Hi Jacquie
Thank you for explaining. I will not advertise to avoid any misconception.

Any advertising of a bookkeeping service would require full registration I’m afraid - it can only be for existing clients who ask you to do it.
