Lawyers and conveyancers have needed to be compliant with the AML/CFT Act since 1 July 2018, and now need to be ready to file their first annual report with the Department of Internal Affairs.

This webinar will take a practical approach to preparation and filing of the annual report and to helping practitioners navigate key issues that are emerging, including interpreting “captured activities”, best practice with efficient and effective due diligence, audit requirements and investigations.

Topics covered will include:

  • Annual return to DIA – with an emphasis on tricky areas and potential pitfalls
  • Independent audit process and providers
  • Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs)
  • Current interpretation issues
  • Significant risk issues
  • Answers to participants’ questions.
