Business and Other Briefings

HMRC: HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is urging Trust or Company Service Providers (TCSPs) to register their businesses with HMRC by 1 April 2008 under the new Money Laundering Regulations (MLR), which came into force on 15 December 2007.  TCSPs need to register with HMRC by the deadline if they want to carry on in business.
At the same time, HMRC is alerting Accountancy Service Providers (ASPs) that they will be able to register with HMRC from 1 April 2008.  Applications received before that date will be held for processing immediately the register opens.
ASPs need to apply before 1 July 2008 to give HMRC sufficient time to process their application by the deadline.  Businesses that apply late risk not being included on the register when it opens on 1 October 2008. If that happens they will not be able to trade legally until they are included on the register.
