Nature of the obligation of the MLAs

Obligated companies have to identify and carry out checks on the ‘beneficiary’ of a transaction and documentation must be kept with the accompanying commercial documents. This means that the consultants or professional brokers at ASPI AG may also require proof of identity / a copy from the commercial register because they are obliged to do so by law. Each party in the transaction is obliged by law to provide this necessary information and documentation.
