Guidance

Duties and responsibilities under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

This advice explains how operators can make sure they and their employees comply with their obligations under The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA).

11 - Terrorist financing

The Terrorism Act establishes several offences about engaging in or facilitating terrorism, as well as raising or possessing funds for terrorist purposes. It establishes a list of proscribed organisations that are believed to be involved in terrorism. The Terrorism Act also contains defences to the principal terrorist property offences, in a similar way to POCA.

The Terrorism Act applies to all persons, and includes obligations to report suspected terrorist financing. Operators should, therefore, report instances of suspected terrorist financing to the NCA using the same methods as those for the reporting of known or suspected money laundering activity.
