FEE issues two papers in support of stronger EU rules to combat money laundering and terrorist financing

 

On 20 May 2015 the European Parliament approved the fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive, which strengthens the existing EU framework for anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing. FEE has contributed throughout this legislative process and welcomes the revised Directive and the high standards it promotes.

Accountants and auditors across Europe play an important role in the fight against money laundering and terrorist-financing with their day-to-day work. FEE is committed to this fight, which is a shared responsibility for society as a whole.

To facilitate the European profession in updating their practice to the revised requirements, FEE has issued the following two documents:

  • FEE Information Paper – the main legislative changes relevant for European professional accountants and auditors.
  • FEE SMP Info Pack – an overview of the EU obligations on anti-money laundering and terrorist financing for accountants, tax advisors, and auditors
