HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has published a list of businesses handed fines for breaching strict money laundering regulations, including money transfer company MT Global Limited, who has been handed the ‘largest ever fine issued by HMRC’ of £23.8m for flouting money laundering regulations between July 2017 and December 2019
