In view of the 4th AML Directive, there is increased pressure for the constant monitoring of financial and administrative service providers. The implementation of the 4th AML Directive as well as the FATF recommendations have created increased KYC and due diligence requirements to all financial and administrative service providers in Cyprus. 

The complexity of AML requirements and the constantly changing AML landscape, have made it a necessity for financial and administrative service providers to continuously adjust and enhance their internal procedures to keep up with regulatory changes.   

We, at APC Audit Tax Advisory Ltd, through our experienced staff, offer Compliance and Anti-Money Laundering consultancy and support services to financial and administrative service providers.
