Disclosure of Unusual Transactions
Whitebridge Advocatuur BV is obliged to respect the Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act (Wet ter voorkoming van witwassen en financieren van terrorisme - hereinafter “Wwft”). The Wwft, aimed at the prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing, places advocaten under an obligation to report “unusual transactions” to the FIU-Nederland. Whitebridge Advocatuur BV is not allowed to inform clients of such a report.
Pursuant to the Wwft, Whitebridge Advocatuur BV may be under an obligation to identify clients. This identification is carried out by requesting a (underlying) client for proof of identity. Advocaten are amongst others under an obligation to identify the (underlying) client in cases where Whitebridge Advocatuur BV participates, whether by acting on behalf of and for a client in any financial or real estate transaction, or by assisting in the planning or carrying out of transactions for a client concerning the:
- buying and selling of real property or business entities;
- managing of client money, securities or other assets;
- opening or management of bank, savings or securities accounts;
- organisation of contributions necessary for the creation, operation or management of companies;
- creation, operation or management of trusts, companies, foundations, or similar structures.
We may not advise or assist a client in such a case as long as the client has not (sufficiently) identified itself. You can contact Anja Dekhuijzen if you have a question regarding the Wwft.
