A woerd from president

The profession is becoming more and more concerned with the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing.

As part of his traditional missions, the professional accountant should:

  1. secure companies and third parties in relation to financial transactions by guaranteeing their credibility;
  2. detect in his functions as a chartered-accountant or an auditor, irregularities as well as suspicions about the activities or transactions which he is aware of;
  3. contribute to the fight against corruption and promote transparency and good governance for the implementation of the laws and regulations notably:
  • Vigilance with regards to the client and the beneficial owner;
  • Vigilance with regards to the operations performed by the client;
  • Reporting to the NAFI;
  • Internal control procedures and measures to implement in the professional structures.

The said norm «Anti-Money Laundering Standard» defines the obligations of chartered accounting professionals in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing.

For professional purposes, it became necessary to make this stan- dard available to the Liberal professional accountant to enable him master the principles.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants offers this book to accounting professionals to enable them to have a tool that summarizes the various obligations relating to the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing and the procedures and internal control measures to be implemented within their professional structures.
Happy reading,

President of the National Institute
Of Chartered Accountants in Cameroon.
