Should my firm register as an accountable institution with the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) or not?


For every accounting professional, the burning question revolves around whether their firm needs to be registered as an accountable institution with the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) and which of their clients are subject to the Customer Due Diligence (CDD) process.

Join us for this webinar where we provide guidance to help you determine whether you should register your firm or not.

If your firm is accountable, it is crucial to register with the FIC without delay.

Even if your firm is not accountable, you must be able to demonstrate how you evaluated all your activities to conclude that your firm is not accountable.

Webinar Content

By attending this webinar, we will provide clarity on:

• Whether your firm needs to register with the FIC.
• Which clients are subject to the Customer Due Diligence process.
• The importance of implementing an RMCP.

If your firm is required to be registered, you will need to develop and implement a Risk Management Compliance Program (RMCP). We have created an RMCP toolkit specifically designed for the accounting profession. During the webinar, we will also demonstrate how this toolkit can assist you.

An interactive Q&A session will follow the webinar, where we will answer all the questions you may have.

By attending this webinar, you will have a solid understanding of your firm’s registration obligations and the steps required for compliance with the FIC.
