The issued (June 2020) topical guidance has added clarification of how PCRT applies to R&D Tax reliefs. You can read the latest information below:
Anti Money Laundering (AML)
MMP fully adheres to this updated guidance. The firm is fully compliant with Anti Money Laundering (AML) legislation. All staff regularly receive AML training, pass examinations, and meet their obligations under the legislation.
MMP is also registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) as per the terms of the Data Protection Act. We work to GDPR regulations, implementing 'duty of care' procedures to manage all aspects of the legislative requirements in full.
These, along with all other processes and procedures, are covered by and certified to the ISO9001 Quality Management System standard.
MMP adopts a forward-thinking view to inclusivity, and we include this approach in our training, policies and manuals, as well as our adherence to the Modern Slavery Act.
Our statements on the Modern Slavery Act are made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, and set out the steps that MMP has taken, and continue to take, to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking, and forced labour.
MMP Tax Limited has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings, and we use effective safeguarding systems and controls.
