New anti-money laundering regulations take effect
The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Pay) Regulations2017 (SI 2017/692) took effect from 26 June 2017 and replace the previous 2007 Regulations with new statutory requirements for systems and procedures. Broadly, the regulations require firms undertaking certain financial activities to apply risk-based customer due diligence measures and take other steps to prevent the firm’s services from being used for money laundering or terrorist financing.
The regulations apply to a number of different business sectors, including financial and credit businesses, accountants and estate agents. Every business covered by the regulations must be supervised by a supervisory authority.

“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” Mother Teresa.
This might seem like a quote that you wouldn’t necessarily associate with the business world and especially, perhaps, the accountancy profession! However, there’s always room for compassion, understanding and service. Andrea says, “This is what I hope I have brought to MJH Accountants over the past four plus years. Working at MJH Accountants has been much more than ‘just a job’, it’s been more of a vocation! Everything I have done has been done with love, care and a genuine concern for doing the best possible job I can. I’m going to miss everyone hugely. Mark, the Team, our wonderful clients! My sincere wish is that MJH Accountants will go from strength to strength. I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead. I bid everyone a fond farewell.”
Mark, on behalf of the entire Team at MJH, would like to thank Andrea for her incredible contribution over the past 4 ½ years. Her hard work and dedication during the formative years of MJH have been invaluable and will be sorely missed.
