Bailiwick of Guernsey AML Services

Guernsey & Alderney AML Services

The Bailiwick of Guernsey includes two AML/CFT regulators – the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC) and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC). The GFSC covers both financial services businesses (regulated, non-regulated and money service providers) and prescribed businesses (legal professionals, accountants and estate agents). The AGCC is responsible for the eGambling industry.

The Guernsey AML/CFT Regime is currently undergoing review following an unprecedented number of responses to the recent consultation. The consultation contained many changes proposed by both the Government and the regulator to ensure that deficiencies highlighted in the island’s latest MONEYVAL report were addressed.

Whilst the new framework remains in flux, Midshore are able to assist with any regulated, registered or prescribed business in compliance with the existing regime. We are also actively keeping abreast of the coming changes and will be able to assist businesses throughout the transition period and beyond.

The AGCC has its own AML/CFT framework that eGambling licensees must comply with, including a comprehensive questionnaire to show compliance with the various requirements of the framework.
