National Crime Agency Launches New SAR Portal

Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR)

The National Crime Agency (NCA) Portal enables individuals to securely submit Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) to the UK Financial Intelligence Unit (UKFIU), which is positioned within NCA.

If you suspect any illegal activity whilst deal sourcing or property sourcing, you MUST report this otherwise if found you were aware and didn’t report, you could face criminal consequences yourself.

Please note, the SAR Portal is only for reporting knowledge of suspicions of money laundering, or believe of suspicions relating to terrorist financing.
