New Zealand have woken up to the fact that we are not all clean. As much as we like to think we are, I’m afraid that’s not always the case.

Moving into the second half of 2018, New Zealand law firms, real estate agencies, and accounting firms need to make sure that they have the appropriate controls in place to perform “Know Your Client” checks as well as a framework to detect and report suspicious activities.

Are you ready to know what dirty money smells like? If you would like to understand how to detect dirty money, our Partner, Nicola Russ would be happy to assess your readiness and be your trusted advisor to help you comply with New Zealand Law. Simpson Western / ANZ / Crombie Lockwood will be conducting a series of practical workshops over the course of the next six months on “how to comply”.
