Every company wants to be sure about good financial standing, therefore it completes financial audit without hesitations. However, when it comes to the independent AML audit, probably more time is spent arguing whether it is really necessary than completing it. But why do you need the independent AML audit?

Reasons why business needs independent anti-money laundering audit

First, it helps you to understand whether the processes work the way they were designed. In other words – do the actions match paperwork.

Second, it is an opportunity for you to evaluate whether you have enough staff. Convincing management and (or) supervisory board that you need additional AML team members sometimes might be hard but the results of the audit can be your undeniable argument.

Third, independent auditors are interested in showing things as they are rather than making something look better than it is. Such an approach helps you to identify gaps and make improvements before the regulator pays a visit. The auditor’s main purpose is to show you where and how to improve operations rather than give a fine as the regulator does.

We can:

– perform independent AML audit;
– perform thematic review(s).
