Anti-money laundering (AML) guidance has been drafted. 

The Legal Sector Affinity Group, which includes the Law Society, has published its draft Legal Sector Anti-Money Laundering Guidance, which takes into account the changes brought about by the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017. The guidance applies to solicitors and replaces the previous anti-money laundering practice note.
