The Bribery Act 2010 created a new offence under section 7, which might be committed by commercial organisations that fail to prevent persons associated with them committing bribery on their behalf.

Anti-money laundering

ACCA has produced a wide range of factsheets, templates and articles to ensure you are equipped to handle the emerging threats from anti-money laundering, cyber security, GDPR and data security.

The AML Policy and Procedures factsheet will help you shape your firm’s AML policy and procedures (P&P). When creating or updating your AML P&P you must consider the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 (MLR 2017); the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Amendment) Regulations 2019; and the Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies (CCAB) Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing Guidance for the Accountancy Sector 2020.

Other sources on anti-money laundering, such as FATF, the NCA website and HM Treasury national risk assessment, can be useful too.
