Whilst we respect the confidentiality of our clients, we are obliged by law (the Anti Money Laundering Regulations 2007) to obtain full and thorough Due Diligence on all directors and beneficial owners.

It is a legal requirement that all corporate service providers are Money Laundering Registered (MLR). CG Incorporations Limited has been registered under the MLR Number 12688312, meaning we have passed the fit and proper test and successfully received confirmation from HM Revenue & Customs to operate.
