Anti – Money Laundering Directive 

The UK government has introduced new anti-money laundering measures (5MLD) 5th Money Laundering Directive that affect all art dealers, galleries and their clients as of the 10th of January 2020. Carnes Fine Art have to conduct due diligence on buyers who purchase art work above the threshold of €10,000 and will now be obliged to take all reasonable steps to diminish the risks of money laundering occurring in the course of our business. As part of these obligations and before the conclusion of any sale, Carnes Fine Art is legally required to carry out identification checks on all clients buying works of art from our gallery.

For individuals, we will require a copy of a valid photo identity document such as a passport, driving license or national ID card which confirms the buyer’s full name, date of birth, nationality and permanent residential address.

For companies, we will require company details including evidence of incorporation, directors and the ultimate beneficial owners.

Where an agent/advisor is acting on behalf of a buyer, we will be required to identify the ultimate buyer in addition to the agent.

Payments to the gallery will need to be received from a bank account held in the name of the person or entity named on the invoice and should match the identity document provided.
