The Financial Intelligence Agency (FIA) of Bermuda was established by the Financial Intelligence Agency Act 2007 to act as an independent agency authorised to receive, gather, store, analyse and disseminate information relating to suspected proceeds of crime and potential financing of terrorism received in the form of Suspicious Activity Reports.

How to comply with AML/CTF regulations in Bermuda

Money laundering is regulated under article 209 of the Criminal Code of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The AML legislation has measures in place for detecting and preventing money laundering and terrorist financing activities that apply to the following entities:

  • Banks, insurance companies
  • Insurance brokerage companies
  • Leasing companies
  • Microcredit organisations
  • Authorised brokers who trade in financial instruments, foreign exchange
  • Interest rates, index instruments, transferrable securities, and commodities futures
  • Societies dealing with electronic money transfer
  • Investment and pension societies and funds, irrespective of legal form
  • Post offices
  • Casinos and other organisers of lottery games, and in particular betting games, gambling on slot machines and lottery games
  • Exchange offices
  • Pawn shops
  • Notaries, lawyers, accountants, and auditors, and
  • Real estate agents.

      As an AML reporting entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina, you must undertake a risk assessment which determines the following:

      • The degree of risks of your group of clients or an individual client,
      • Business relations,
      • Transactions or products regarding the possibility of misuse for the purposes of money laundering or financing terrorist activities.

      As an AML reporting entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina, you must undertake a risk assessment which determines the following:

      • Establishing a business relationship with a client
      • Performing a transaction amounting to or exceeding 30,000 KM, irrespective of whether it concerns one transaction or more connected transactions
      • The existence of doubts on the credibility and adequacy of previously obtained information about the client or the beneficial owner
      • The existence of doubts on money or terrorist financing activities related to the transaction or the client, regardless of the transaction amount

      All information, data and documents obtained must be kept for at least 10 years after identification, completion of a transaction, closing of an account or the termination of the validity of a contract.

      What are my AML/CFT reporting obligations

      All reporting entities must report to the Financial Intelligence Department, providing them with the relevant information data and documentation when suspicion has arisen and before the transaction is completed. The report shall state the period during which the transaction is expected to be executed.

      You must also report a cash transaction of 30.000 KM or more and connected transactions which together amount to 30.000 KM or more.
