  3. The repatriation of funds in practice

The repatriation of funds in practice

I register my interest

In the past years, supervisory expectations regarding the way in which repatriation files should be handled by financial institutions from an ML/TF perspective have increased significantly. A particular difficulty for these cases is that one should not only be familiar with the AML/CFT requirements, but also with the tax requirements that apply.

This training aims to provide you with guidance on how to handle a repatriation case in practice.  Based on real-life cases, it offers an overview of which questions to ask, which documents to collect, and how to draw conclusions, taking into account the AML/CFT requirements and the tax aspects linked to such a case. The training is not theory-based, but highly practical and hands-on.
