FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Sanctions and AML Compliance relevant for my business?

Global AML & KYC regulations are a complicated field to navigate especially for small and midsize businesses (SMB). Not only the complexity of the regulations itself make it difficult but often there are regulations from multiple countries or organizations to obey.

While the financial industry / financial institutions and other ‘high risk industries’ such as real estate have been required for a long time to have AML and KYC processes in place, many other industries only now face stricter regulations due to global widespread of Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering compliance requirements.

In general all businesses are required to adopt Sanctions- and AML compliance programs and for example check their customers / business partners against global Sanctions lists to understand the risk in doing business with their clients.
