The Aruba State Ordinance for the Prevention and Combating of Money Laundering (ML) and Terrorist Financing (TF)) provides rules for establishing and verifying client identity and for reporting unusual transactions. The purpose of these rules is to prevent and combat money laundering and terrorist financing. The rules apply to any company that provides financial services or certain non-financial services, including tax and legal services.
ATLAS supports the fight against ML and TF, and recognizes the role that it must play. ATLAS wishes to avoid any appearance of acting with knowledge or suspicion of the connection to crime or without proper regard for what it may be facilitating by providing its products and services.
ATLAS is committed to complying with all legislation and regulations relating to AML/CFT procedures, and to cooperate with all relevant authorities to protect the integrity and reputation of the tax advisory sector on Aruba.
ATLAS’s Tax Partners are committed to and responsible for safeguarding the integrity of ATLAS as a respected business. They give shape to that commitment by performing a business risk assessment of the operations and following through with relevant, specific, and proportional AML/CFT policies and procedures. They actively promote a culture of compliance, risk and compliance awareness, and awareness of the importance of AML/CFT compliance, and encourage ethical behavior.
