There is now complex law in place to crack down on Money Laundering and the Proceeds of Crime.
You may have noticed that since the passing of the Act in 2002, proceeds of crime cases have regularly featured in the news.
There are many regulations that have been added since the 2002 Act, most notably the Money Laundering Regulations of 2007.

The law applies to anyone accused of being involved in:
- Concealing, disguising, converting, transfering or removing criminal property from the United Kingdom.
- Entering into or becoming concerned in an arrangement which they know or suspect facilities(by whatever means) the acquisition, retention, use or control of criminal property by or on behalf of another person.
- Acquiring, use or have possession of criminal property.
If any of the above apply, you can be accused of being engaged in money laundering.
