Part 4 of the Criminal Justice (Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing) Act 2010 (CJA 2010) contains provisions requiring any person wishing to carry on the business of a TCSP to obtain an authorisation to do so. The Central Bank has published guidance in relation to the requirements for applying for authorisation as a Trust or Company Service Provider (TCSP) under the CJA 2010. In advance of making an application, each potential applicant must assess whether its proposed business model requires authorisation. Independent legal advice should be sought if in any doubt as to whether authorisation as a TCSP is required.
