Consultation description

This consultation invites views and evidence on the steps that the government proposes to take to meet the UK’s expected obligation to transpose the Fifth Money Laundering Directive into national law.

The Fifth Money Laundering Directive makes amendments to the Fourth Money Laundering Directive on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purposes of money laundering and terrorist financing. These amendments and new provisions will further strengthen transparency and the existing preventative framework, whilst ensuring the UK adheres to international standards set by the Financial Action Task Force.

The government is keen to ensure that the UK’s anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing regime effectively deters money laundering and terrorist financing activity, whilst being proportionate and managing burdens on businesses.
