New accountant - Money laundering

Hi All,

One of my clients is changing accountants and i received a clearance email from them and in it they asked for copies of my money laundering records for that client i.e the ID etc and whether any issues arrised concerning and to give full details.

I've never seen this in a professional clearance letter, is this normal? surely they would carry out their own proof of ID? There had been no issues with the client but if there was I don't know if I would be comfortable discussing it, would i even be allowed to?

Thanks in advance,

    I did think it was unusual but didn't want to ignore it just in case i was something i hadn't come accross before.

    Thanks :)

    I also agree with mrme89. They need to perform their own MRL checks not use yours.
