Agents are using Unity Link’s existing Remitone software in the same way by our branches and agents in Europe. The software system used by all UMS Agents and staff are fully compliant with the laid down procedures required by the Dutch regulators compliance rules. The software used by our agents has in-built Money Laundering filters that are able to identify, monitor and track transactions. Our own Remitone programme monitors all payments on the basis of our Money Laundering Procedures as required by the FIU and any changes to the requirements will be automatically reflected on our Remitone software.
We are working closely with our regulators to make sure we comply with their rules.
