The Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), the regulator in charge of Canada’s anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing (AML and ATF) regime, has indicated to Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) that the accounting sector’s AML and ATF compliance efforts require improvement. This alert provides a summary of the obligations for accountants and accounting firms under the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA) and its regulations, and examines the consequences of non-compliance.
The alert provides additional guidance based on the results of FINTRAC’s past examinations of accountants and accounting firms. The publication also directs readers to more detailed AML and ATF compliance guidance issued by CPA Canada in 2014, A Guide to Comply with Canada’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Legislation.
