Guernsey FSC Publishes AML/CTF Guide

by Robert Pilgrim, LawAndTax-News.com, London

31 December 2009


The Guernsey Financial Services Commission is proposing changes to its AML/CFT (anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism) legislation.

The changes will require postage stamp dealers, bullion dealers, firms of accountants which are currently not registered with the Commission, and firms (including sole practitioners) of insolvency practitioners, auditors and tax advisors to register with the Commission and to comply with the AML/CFT regulations, and with the rules in the Commission’s handbooks.

As the Commission is conscious that the requirements of the regulations may appear complex and onerous, especially to firms which have not previously been subject to any form of AML/CFT regulation or supervision, the guidance note provides information to assist such firms.

The guidance paper, available on the Commission’s website, provides a simplified overview of the requirements of the regulations and the rules in the Handbooks.

However, the FSC cautioned that whilst this information and the guidance paper have been prepared to provide an overview, they do not provide comprehensive coverage of all rules and regulations.
