This course will enable you to

  • Deploy anti-money laundering (AML) solutions to ensure compliance with UK regulations.
  • Ensure your firm complies with bribery and corruption laws.
  • Understand the UK legal and regulatory financial framework in order to safeguard you and your practice.
  • Adhere to data protection regulations to safely secure and hold client data.

About the course

Being a good accountant means going beyond just complying with standards, there is also the matter of the law! It's crucial for you to stay up to date with a range of legal aspects. This is especially true for the UK's regulatory framework concerning anti-money laundering, counter terrorist financing, and anti-bribery, as well as data protection.

This course looks at each of these areas and, by considering the policy-making framework, the role of the regulator and law enforcement, helps you protect your practice and your clients. The course is an overview of regulatory compliance, it is not advisory. It also covers data protection regulations concerning how you remain compliant when managing and collecting data.
