Financial crime, international money laundering and terrorist financing continues to develop in terms of complexity and sophistication. The Joint Financial Crimes Unit, which is made up of States of Jersey Police officers and Customs and Immigration Service officers, works to detect, prevent and investigate these types of crimes.
Jersey has high international standards of financial services and we rate highly in terms of our efforts to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. However, this doesn’t stop criminals from targeting Jersey.
Financial services businesses have certain obligations that they must fulfil if they suspect suspicious activity (eg fraud or money laundering). In this instance, you are required to compile a Suspicious Activity Report, or "SAR". You can find out more about SARs and how to compile and submit them, in the 'Suspicious Activity Reports' section.
