Banq24 complies with all money laundering legislation and guidelines. We have a legal obligation to report to Customs, Excise and NCIS about any suspicious transactions.
a. The law requires us to monitor any unusual or suspicious transactions of any size where we have reasonable grounds to believe the money is derived from illegal activity. Where a report of any such transaction is made, MoneyNetInt accepts no liability for any delay in transmission of the funds.
b. The law also requires us to keep full records of all transactions above 15,000 GBP, including copies of identification documents provided. Therefore you need to provide identification documents to process such transactions, failing which such transactions will fail.
What identification documents need to be provided for transactions above 15,000 GBP?
