HMRC anti-money laundering supervision goes online

HMRC will be launching online anti money laundering supervision system in 2017.

In 2017 HMRC is introducing an online, digital system for anti-money laundering supervision. When it launches, businesses will be able to register and renew online.

The online system will:
  • allow all registrations, renewals, updates and payments to be made online
  • reduce errors and ‘rejected’ applications - these will be flagged instantly by the new system, avoiding forms being returned for re-submission
  • better meet customer needs - this has been possible through asking businesses to test the system and tell us how they think it should work.
Currently we ask businesses registering for the first time to complete their form online, print it off and post it to us. Businesses renewing their registration are sent a letter and asked to respond by post. We know that this causes delays.

A selection of customers have been helping us develop the system over the last year. We’re still asking customers to use the system and provide feedback, helping us refine it further.

Using the system for the first time will involve a one-off completion of your details.

This is the same if you are already registered with HMRC or if you are registering with us for the first time. Don’t worry if you don’t have everything to hand as you’ll be able to save your entries and come back to them for up to 28 days.

When you come to renew a year later, your details will be stored and the process will be quick, easy and completely paperless.

We’ll be communicating with customers when the system is ready to launch.

To use the new system you’ll need an online ID. If you don’t have an ID, you can register at Government Gateway online.

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. I have faith this will be a great success; HMRC have been using CUSTOMERS (whatever they are) to 'help' them over the last year.

  2. Paging Ken, Ken, please pick up the nearest courtesy phone.

  3. Are we sure HMRC have REALLY tested the system? They say 'customers' were selected - what was the selection criterion?

  4. OT I know, but as Ken appears to have been kidnapped by aliens or Excom please consider taking action:


    If you still have your old poppy please put it in an envelope and post it without a stamp or your details to

    Strasse 20
    PO BOX 8044

    they have to pay the postage ironically
    given their didgusting application of fines by claiming Poppies to be political FFS!

    Members of HMRC's predecessor Departments lost their lives in 2 World Wars. A fact that puts the actions of todays HMRC management to shame.
    So, seasons greetings to Ken and all his readers and FECK FIFA.
