Interactive compliance quiz and art specific online AML training

October 28, 2020

Today we are pleased to announce the first in our online interactive tools and services.

Does Anti-Money Laundering affect you?

If you’re a UK art business, cast your mind back to January this year when the regulations were announced. Businesses were expected to go from 0 to 100 with limited understanding, experience and assistance.

Confusion aside, we wanted to help art businesses figure-out if they even need to worry about these new regulations.

Introducing - drumroll please - the arcarta compliance quiz. In less than 30 seconds you can find out if your business falls under regulation.

The Arcarta AML Compliance Quiz is available here.
