It's a legal requirement for businesses in the regulated sector to put in place systems and controls to prevent financial crime, money laundering and counter-terror financing. This includes those businesses in the financial sector, such as accountants and bookkeepers, and businesses where substantial sums of money form part of the business, such as estate agents and those in the gambling industry.
