Berkshire Gold Direct Anti-Money Laundering Policy
As a client purchasing precious metals it is important to understand the IRS rules and what it says about money laundering.
According to www.irs.gov money laundering refers to the activities and financial transactions that are undertaken specifically to hide the true source of the money.
There has never been a time in history when governments have had more rules and regulations pertaining to money laundering… and for good reason. There has been a rise in criminal activities such as cyber-hacking and terrorist threats. Berkshire Gold Direct understands and takes serious these criminal activities and does its best to stop money laundering by adhering to all local, state and national laws.
Berkshire Gold Direct advises clients to do their own research on both the Internal Revenue Service and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network websites to make sure they are in full compliance at all times. Never do business with any precious metals company that is willing to bend the rules. The law will show no leniency to either party.
Berkshire Gold Direct’s staff undergoes initial and regular trainings on suspicious activity and will report such incidents immediately.
