As per the federal law no. (20) of 2018 on Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism and Illegal Organizations:

  2. Transferring or moving proceeds or conducting any transaction with the aim of concealing or disguising their illegal source.
  3. Concealing or disguising the true nature, source or location of the proceeds as well as the method involving their disposition, movement, ownership of or rights with respect to said proceeds.
  4. Acquiring, possessing or using proceeds upon receipt.
  5. Assisting the perpetrator of the predicate offence to escape punishment.
  6. The crime of Money Laundering is considered as an independent crime. The punishment of the perpetrator for the predicate offence shall not prevent his punishment for the crime of Money Laundering.

The new UAE Anti-Money Laundering Law is implemented to ensure the regulatory role of UAE government through the central bank of the emirates. The central bank of UAE regulates and monitor the operations of financial institutions and bank across the Emirates. In accordance with the AML compliance law, any activity or transaction suspected to be related to Money-Laundering shall be reported to the central bank of the UAE. Most suspected types of activity that could be related to Money-Laundering are:

  • Large cash transfers or deposits
  • Numerous exchange of money into other currencies
  • Alleged setup of business with no commercial purpose
  • Unusual and enormous transactions of debit and credit into the accounts
Importance of Anti-Money Laundering Compliance
AML procedures serve to create societies where crime is less frequent and financial inclusion is encouraged by precise and reliable KYC systems, which protect the most vulnerable members of society.

UAE as a country is deeply committed to preventing money laundering and financing of terrorism and illegal organizations. The authorities have established the law and framework to detect, prevent and discourage financial crimes. The authorities are constantly working to enhance and improve the capabilities of the institutions that are devoted to enforce the law.
