FIAU 2023-24 Supervisory Plan: Preparing for FIAU Compliance visits

BDO is here to assist Subject Persons in getting prepared for AML/CFT Supervisory visits

The FIAU's AML/CFT Supervisory Plan for 2023 - 2024 is a detailed plan of action of how the FIAU intends to conduct its supervision of Subject Persons in the coming months, including the focus areas to be prioritised during on-site visits, off-site visits, thematic reviews and supervisory meetings. The FIAU plan aims to support Subject Persons in the understanding and implementation of their AML/CFT obligations, to effectively combat money laundering and terrorism financing.


What should Subject Persons expect?

Subject Persons should expect compliance visits and related compliance requests from the FIAU as it rolls out its supervisory plan. Ensuring your business's compliance with AML/CFT policies and procedures is of utmost importance as the cost of compliance breaches , as well as the reputational and business risks, far outweigh any compliance obligations. At BDO, we understand the challenges subject persons may face in meeting these obligations, and we have tailored our advisory services to help you achieve compliance.
