Money Laundering

Home Money Laundering

Money laundering is the illegal process of concealing the origins of money obtained illegally by passing it through a complex sequence of banking  transfers or commercial transactions. The overall scheme of this process returns the "clean" money to the launderer in an obscure and indirect way. Both Thai and foreign laws and regulations have been enacted in around the globe that make financial services firms, and in some cases individuals, responsible for preventing or stopping money laundering. These laws are frequently updated to deal with ever more sophisticated money laundering schemes. As the burden to stop money laundering largely falls to individual institutions, a lack of anti-money laundering (AML) training and failure to enforce money laundering laws routinely results in multimillion Baht fines. We advice on anti-money laundering to implement and maintain a compliance program in accordance to Thai law as well as to defend violations of money laundering claims.
