POCA Guidance from the SRA 26th June 2023

This guidance on the Proceeds of Crime Act applies to all people and firms regulated by the SRA, whether or not they fall within AML scope. The SRA have given notice that they will have regard to this guidance when exercising it's regulatory functions. The guidance has been issued to help people understand the SRA's expectations.

Below is a link to the guidance. It has some useful examples, a list of Red Flags to watch out for, how to make a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR), exemptions and emphasises the need for the training of staff [with which we can assist].

Here is the link to the Guidance.
