Defence Against Money Laundering Offences

Money laundering legislation

There are a number of pieces of legislation concerning money laundering offences that are enforceable in the UK. These include:

  • the Terrorism Act
  • the Proceeds of Crime Act
  • the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act
  • the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act
  • specific Money Laundering Regulations

The definition of money laundering in the UK is wider than in many other places and businesses and individuals can be prosecuted for money laundering if handling the proceeds of crime. Money laundering offences in the UK do not even have to involve cash – prosecutions can be made relating to other assets and there is no minimum monetary value.

Investigative bodies

The police, HM Revenue and Customs and the Serious Fraud Office all have comprehensive powers to investigate cases of suspected money laundering. We can defend you if you’re being investigated or prosecuted by any investigative body.

Get in touch

If you or your company is being investigated for money laundering then it’s important for you to appoint specialist solicitors who have a thorough understanding of the legislation around these offences.
