Company Service Providers & Ongoing Obligations

Castille Institute is pleased to welcome Stefan-John Berry on the 5 April 2019 as he delivers Company Service Providers and Ongoing Obligations.

Gone are the days where providing a company-administration or management service is side activity conducted in a dodgy manner and with little to no accountability. Nowadays, Company Service Providers (CSPs) are regulated persons and required to strictly adhere to a plethora of requirements imposed by law, regulations and other rules in force. What are the main requirements to be satisfied? What is expected from key functions, such as the Compliance Officer and the MLRO? How can the Compliance Officer ensure that all of these obligations are being met? The MLRO needs to ensure that AML/CFT obligations are fulfilled at all times. In the session, we will focus on the duties of both Officers and suggest approaches how one may put together good and sustainable CSP practice. Above all, following registration, what are the various ongoing obligations?
