Important Notice on Designation of Tax Crimes as Money Laundering Predicate Offences in Singapore

Dear Valued Customers,

As of 1st July 2013, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (“MAS”) has designated tax crimes as money laundering predicate offences.

Singapore’s Corruption, Drug Trafficking and Other Serious Crimes (Confiscation of Benefits) Act (“Act”) has also been correspondingly updated to include tax crimes as designated offences. This means that the powers to investigate and to prosecute money laundering under the said Act are also applicable to the proceeds of the designated tax offences.

With the designation, Phillip Futures Pte Ltd (“PFPL”), as a capital markets services licence holder as with all other regulated financial institutions must apply the full suite of the anti-money laundering/countering the financing of terrorism measures set out in the Notices and Guidelines issued by the MAS, to prevent the laundering of proceeds from serious tax crimes.

This Notice serves to remind you, the clients, that you shall at all times comply with all relevant laws (local or foreign) to which you are subject to, including but without limitation, tax laws and regulations, exchange control requirements and registration requirements with respect to your funds and assets placed with PFPL (“Tax Laws”). You are also responsible for your own tax affairs and shall ensure that any or all funds and assets placed with PFPL comply with the relevant Tax Laws which you are subject to.
