Black Money is defined as money, goods or values obtained as a result of illegal activities. Large amounts of income are generated illegally in the world. The source of the mentioned income is mostly drugs and psychotropic substances, arms smuggling, explosives, trafficking of women and children.
Money laundering is the act of deliberately concealing the source of black money in order to make it usable by giving legitimate appearance to the income obtained from illegal activities.
New money laundering regulations were introduced by the UK government on 15 December 2007. This new law has had a significant impact on the way companies that offer company incorporation activities operate in the UK. As a result, company formation agents are subject to Anti Money Laundering Regulations and are directly inspected by HM Revenue & Customs. England Limited is obliged to verify identity and address as part of customer due diligence pursuant to applicable law.
