There is an increasing expectation that accountants should be alert to red flags that point potential money laundering situations, even if they are not specifically tasked with monitoring AML compliance. The General Standards Rule of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct, for example, implies that an alertness to such red flags is a matter of diligence, due care and competence. This workshop unpacks AML compliance requirements from an ethics perspective and considers real world cases involving accounting and financial professionals' responses to AML red flags.
