English WWFT e-learning module

Training obligation WWFT

top

Among other things, the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act (WWFT) imposes the obligation on tax advisers and accountants to conduct client due diligence and disclose unusual transactions to an appointed reporting body, FIU-Nederland. The WWFT also stipulates that firms must periodically train their employees, insofar as this is relevant to their work, so they are capable of recognising an unusual transaction and of fully and completely conducting client due diligence (Article 35 of the WWFT). In principle, this training obligation applies to all NOB members working as tax advisers. The WWFT does not apply to corporate tax consultants.

Updated WWFT e-learning module

In 2008 the NOB, in conjunction with (the legal predecessors of) the NBA, developed an e-learning module that enabled members to comply with this training obligation. In 2013 the e-learningmodule WWFT is revised. In addition to the legislative changes, new insights and relevant recent jurisprudence were also incorporated in the updated version. The WWFT imposes a periodical training requirement. Consequently, even if you have completed the former e-learning module it is necessary and useful to complete the updated e-learning module. The updated e-learning module was launched on 21 October 2013.
