Client identification obligations and anti-money laundering policies
Van Campen Liem must ascertain its clients’ identity and under certain circumstances report unusual transactions to the relevant authorities without informing the client.
Our anti-money laundering (AML) policies are based on the highest standards that are required in the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Van Campen Liem conducts client due diligence enquiries on each new client and persons connected with them and conducts ongoing monitoring of existing clients. These enquiries are amongst others based on the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act and derived policies.
Where necessary for these purposes, we seek relevant information from third party data suppliers. Where individuals have supplied personal data for this purpose we will only use it for that purpose and will keep it only as long as the relevant AML and data protection legislation requires.
Please ask your adviser if you have questions about these legal requirements or refer to the website of the Bureau Financieel Toezicht (Financial Supervision Office) or the Nederlandse Orde van Advocaten (The Dutch Bar Association) for further information.
Van Campen Liem also has internal procedures to ensure that any suspicions of money laundering are reported to the appropriate authorities where there is an obligation to do so. Lawyers and other relevant staff are provided with training on these issues.
Mandatory disclosure of certain fiscal cross-border structures
Under the Luxembourg Act on reportable cross-border arrangements of 25 March 2020 (Loi du 25 mars 2020 relative aux dispositifs transfrontières devant faire l’objet d’une déclaration) and the Netherlands Act on international assistance in the field of taxation (Wet op de internationale bijstandsverlening bij de heffing van belastingen), transposing Council Directive (EU) 2018/822 of 25 May 2018 regarding mandatory automatic exchange of information in the field of taxation in relation to reportable cross-border arrangements, in derogation of what would otherwise apply, as attorneys at law we can and are even required to invoke our legal professional privilege and maintain client confidentiality. We consistently maintain client confidentiality and, as a result, we are not required to file information on reportable cross-border arrangements in relation to our clients. By contrast, depending on the circumstances, you, the client, will have reporting obligations under the law regarding the reportable cross-border arrangements advised upon by us in the course of our engagement. Should you have any questions in this regard, please contact your adviser.
