Reporting suspicion of money laundering or terrorist financing
Terrorist financing is used to finance terrorist groups through legal sources and funds acquired through criminal offences, e.g. money laundering. By means of money laundering, illegally generated money is smuggled into the legal financial and economic cycle.
On the basis of the Money Laundering Act (AMLA), special obligations are imposed on so-called "obliged entities" from the non-financial sector, i.e. companies and individuals, which are intended to make their business relationships and business activities transparent. The aim is to prevent transactions with a criminal background and to uncover them with the help of obliged parties.
Further information can be obtained from the competent authority or the Lower Saxony Ministry of Finance.
