Owners and directors of agency businesses can start signing up to the new anti-money laundering regime next week. They can also expect an increase in mandatory AML fees.
The 2017 Money Laundering Regulations introduced a new requirement for owners and directors of estate agency businesses to be approved.
The regime also takes in shareholders who own 25% or more of a business.
No person can be an owner, 25%+ shareholder or director of an estate agency business unless they have been approved by HMRC to hold such a position.
