As of 25 July 2018 the new (fourth) directive against money laundering has come into effect. In line with the ‘Law on Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism (Wwft)’, we are required to check and register the identity of our clients and, if applicable, to confirm the origin of the received moneys or consigned goods. Cash payments of or exceeding €10,000, whether a single transaction or the cumulative amount of several transactions over a period of 12 months, must be reported to the registration centre for Unusual Transactions. For more information about this directive, please see https://wetten.overheid.nl/BWBR0024282/2019-01-01.
