MLA Audit

We are among the first auditing firms in Switzerland to get authorisation to conduct audits under money laundering provisions (Audit MLA).

The Swiss Federal Act on Money Laundering (MLA) requires financial intermediaries to be vigilant in respect of the credentials of their clients in compliance with ‘know your costumer’ rules. There are extensive provisions in respect of verification of identity of the customer and the beneficial owner. Further it requires supervision of the financial intermediaries by Money Laundering Control Authority or the recognised self-regulating bodies.

Multifiduciaire Léman SA is a certified auditing body fulfilling the stringent requirements to carry out the audits under Money Laundering Act.

We are allowed to conduct audits in accordance with the provisions of Money Laundering Act from Money Laundering Control Authority and the self-regulating bodies including Association Romande des Intermédiaires Financiers (ARIF) and Association Suisse des Gérants de Fortune (ASG) and Union Suisse des Fiduciaires (USF) and OAR-G.
