If you are unable to register online, please email us (aml [at] and we will be pleased to send you a paper form for completion.

First-time registration

Those registering for AML supervision with CIOT for the first time will need to provide us with some initial information in order to be set up on our system. Please email us (aml [at] with the following information:

  • Name of CIOT member
  • Membership number
  • Confirmation of email address
  • Name of business
  • Type of entity being registered, i.e. sole practice, limited company, partnership or LLP
  • Membership details of other supervisory professional bodies for all principals in the business (principal means a sole practitioner, equity partner in a partnership, member of a limited liability partnership or company director listed at Companies House)

Following receipt of your email we will be in touch to confirm that you may proceed with the registration.

Please note that all applications are subject to a number of checks before we are able to accept the firm for AML supervision. Members need to ensure that they are registered and have completed all associated registration requirements, including submission of criminality checks, within two months of commencing in business (or to ensure there is no gap in supervision if a member moves from a previous supervisor so again we would recommend commencement of the process at least two months before that date). Failure to deal with matters within this timescale may result in referral to the Taxation Disciplinary Board who may impose a fine or other sanction.  In addition late registrants will be required to pay AML registration fees for all years for which they should have been registered with the CIOT for AML supervision (see late registration policy and guidance below).

Late Registration policy and guidance

Where you are registering late for AML supervision please refer to the late registration policy and guidance note.
