|CPD Hours:||Attendance at this seminar will secure 3 hour/s verifiable CPD points including other professional bodies (SAICA, SAIBA, ACCA, IACSA, IRBA & etc)|
Accountable institutions must comply with the Financial Centre Intelligence Act or they could face heavy penalties. In terms of the Act, training on FICA is a key fundamental requirement. The Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA) provides for specific requirements that all accountable institutions have to follow in order to ensure they mitigate the risk of money laundering, and also places a legal obligation on all employees to report money laundering transactions. Should non-compliance occur, severe consequences will follow. Make sure your employees understand their responsibilities and the process to follow to be able to comply with the Act and identify and report suspicious acts or transactions.
