Does anyone have a template checklist I could "borrow" for use when assessing the ML risk of new clients? I know AAT MIPs are genrally expected to only work with "low risk" businesses, but that makes it harder to think of something contructive to document.

Thank you

    I work through the following noting yes/no answers and assessing the risk as either low, medium or high:

    - Is it a cash based business?
    - Does it have non-UK resident directors?
    - Does it have non-UK resident shareholders?
    - Are there any cross-border transactions?
    - Are there any complex transactions?
    - Are they in a higher-risk industry?
