Do I have an obligation to report?

The Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act (Wwft) determines to whom the Act applies under the term ‘entity’ (see Section 1 of the Wwft Act). The term ‘entity’ includes legal entities, but also natural persons. In addition, it mentions several services and activities in respect of specific entities that need not be reported.
