CASE STUDY – Compliance only where it matters
In non-financial businesses, there can be some confusion as to what activities fit within the AML/CFT Act.
Our client, a co-working space in Auckland within the trust-and-company-service-provider (TCSP) industry weren’t sure whether or not a particular service they offered fell within the AML/CFT Act. This was crucial, as it meant the difference between undertaking KYC on thousands of customers, or only a dozen.
Liaising directly with the DIA (the industry’s regulator), Fiducia presented a case that only a dozen, rather than all customers should be subject to KYC based on specific nature of the services offered by the business. The Fiducia presentation was accepted by the DIA.
This not only meant huge time and cost saving for our client but it allowed us to share this piece of policy development within the rest of the sector, creating greater security for others with a similar issue.
Fiducia makes AML compliance relevant and (gasp!) exciting. Claire cuts through the compliance jargon bs and really gets to know you and your business. She is not a cookie cutter like a number of other compliance consultants out in the market and she takes a hands-on approach to make a practical difference for your business.
