Client Due Diligence Update

From 1 October 2018 Accountants have been required to comply with the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT Act).  To comply with the Act we are required to do customer due diligence on our clients.


This means we need to have on file verification of your identity and proof of your residential address. A JP, Solicitor or Chartered Accountant needs to sight and certify the following:



A passport that is not expired and has been signed OR a current drivers licence paired with either a birth certificate / EFTPOS card that is not expired, has been signed on the back and has your name printed on the card (not 'cardholder').


Residential Address 

A utility bill or bank statement that has been issued in the last 3 months and is not in a Company or Trust name.


If you could please return these certified documents via email to or bring into the office, if you have not done so already. We do not need the originals.
