A large majority of accountants consider money laundering a major problem, but they themselves do not have the Wwft in order.
The Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act (Wwft) has been a hot topic among accountants, administration and tax offices for some time now. But no matter how “hot” it may be, for many of them it remains a bit unclear, inscrutable, even vague: “What exactly is expected of us?” That does not feel good. Reason for us to put five questions to 466 accountants: about how they see the seriousness and necessity of the Wwft, and what that means for their practice.

Everything was different this summer. When you looked outside it seemed as if the world stood still. This was certainly not the case internally at ComplianceWise. With Grub, we launched the first and only Compliance solution with which accountants fully and demonstrably comply with the Wwft.

But where does Grub actually come from, and what makes Grub so different from other Wwft tools?
The number of BFT visits to accountants and administration offices is rising sharply. ComplianceWise asked Charles van der Voort, formerly a Public Prosecutor, now a lawyer at VOI Advocaten in Breda, about his vision on the question: what are the do’s and don’ts when the BFT comes along? And what if the BFT finds that the Wwft has not been complied with?
