Overview

Ethics Pronouncement (EP) 200 provides the anti-money laundering (AML) and countering the financing of terrorism (CFT) requirements and guidelines for professional accountants in Singapore. EP 200 is applicable to all professional accountants in business, public practices and professional firms.

In addition to EP 200, Registered Filing Agents ( RFAs ) are also required to follow guidelines to comply with AML and CFT.  With the updated RFA Guidelines issued by ACRA, it would be highly beneficial for professionals to understand the key differences between EP 200 and the RFA Guidelines.
