Preventing Financial Crime

Anti-Money Laundering

MacRoberts LLP is fully committed to fulfilling its obligations under the Money Laundering Regulations 2017, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and other relevant legislation for the purposes of combating money laundering and terrorist financing.

We carry out client verification checks, both electronic and paper based, at client take on and throughout transactions and our relationship with you.  Where appropriate, we will seek to establish the source of wealth and source of funds used in transactions in which we are involved.  Procedures and policies are in place to ensure we comply with the relevant legislation, and we may ask you to provide copy documents and information to assist us in meeting our obligations.

Our partners and staff are trained in how to comply with the legislation, and we may refuse to act if we have concerns.

Preventing the Facilitation of Tax Evasion

MacRoberts LLP is committed to conducting business with honesty, integrity and in full compliance with the law and to preventing illegal tax evasion, in terms of the Criminal Finances Act 2017.

We have a zero tolerance policy towards tax evasion and the facilitation of tax evasion whether committed by, or facilitated by, a client, a member of staff or any other associated person.  That policy is fully endorsed by the whole of our partnership.

We expect all partners and staff to demonstrate the highest standards of honesty at all times and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken wherever tax evasion or the facilitation of tax evasion by any partners or staff is proven.

We expect all those with whom we conduct business to maintain a similar zero tolerance policy, and do not and will not work with others if we suspect that tax evasion or the facilitation of tax evasion is connected with a transaction or engagement.
