Casinos, real estate developers and dealers of high-value items will have to report any cash transaction exceeding P500,000 or $10,000 to the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) to help stop any illegal fund transfers in the country.
That is, if Congress passes a proposed amendment to the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA).
