Audit according to SPG and preparation of expert reports
Liechtenstein has given the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing top priority for years and pursues a zero-tolerance policy in this area. As an EEA member, Liechtenstein has implemented the 4th and 5th EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive and Regulation (EU) 2015/847 on information accompanying transfers of funds.
The corresponding implementation provisions can be found in particular in the Act on Professional Due Diligence to Combat Money Laundering, Organized Crime and Terrorist Financing (Due Diligence Act; DDA) and in the Ordinance on Professional Due Diligence to Combat Money Laundering, Organized Crime and Terrorist Financing (Due Diligence Ordinance; DDO). The requirements of the Anti-Money Laundering Guidelines regarding register of beneficial owners were implemented in the Act on the Register of Beneficial Owners of Legal Entities (VwbPG).
The Liechtenstein Financial Market Authority (FMA) carries out regular checks on compliance with the provisions of the Law on Professional Due Diligence to Combat Money Laundering, Organized Crime and Terrorist Financing (Due Diligence Act, DDA) and the associated Implementing Ordinance (Due Diligence Ordinance, DDO) or has them carried out by an appointed auditing company or the special statutory auditors. The checks are risk-based and generally include both formal and material checks on the plausibility of the due diligence obligations.
Persons subject to due diligence who do not have a special statutory auditor may submit two proposals for auditors or audit firms to the FMA.
