AML/CFT Reminder

The Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Amendment Act 2017: January is around the corner and we can still help with making the administrative processes easier.

Whether you need to verify a document or certify a document, in order to ensure that you systematically collect all of the relevant information, a customised rubber stamp can help. We even have some pre-fabricated ones to choose from.

The Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Amendment Act 2017 is going to mean extra administration for certain professionals whom have not been affected up until now. The professionals affected will now extend to include conveyancers, accountants, real estate agents, businesses trading in high value goods, businesses that provide trust and company services and even sports & racing betting. The onus will be on some being able to ‘verify’ documents and yet others being able to ‘certify’ documents.

The information blog provided here is not intended as a comprehensive guide to all involved, but rather as a specific service in the field of making administration far easier with our rubber stamps. If you need to obtain more information relating to dates of implementation and what the Act requires of you, please refer to the ‘Resources and Tips’ section below.

New Zealand Law Society’s published guide dated 28 February 2014 (linked below) relating to prefabricated certifier rubber stamps states (quote); “While there is no absolute rule on the wording lawyers should use when certifying documentation, the Practice Briefing suggests that firms could make up two prefabricated certification stamps. One stamp could be made up for use when the document includes a photograph of the customer and one (or perhaps two) when it does not. The important point which runs through the whole process is that any prefabricated certification stamps or any particular wording may not always meet the needs of a particular reporting entity”. 1

We Craft Metallic Wax Seals As Well As ‘Cookie’ Stamps And ‘Pottery’ Stamps.

There is an element of olde world charm and prestige surrounding the beauty of what a well-made wax seal can do. Whether the seal is used for a unique looking wedding invitation, adding a seal to jar, corporate invitations to distinguished guests or to place – name settings, there are nearly endless possibilities using metal wax seals made for purpose.

Our Wax Seals

The material we use for these metal stamps is magnesium and depending on the size of the metal die and function, we mount them onto beautifully turned solid hardwood handles or simple function pine handles. For wedding invitations and other corporate invitations, the metallic wax die usually measures 23mm in diameter which attaches perfectly to our bespoke wooden handles.

We do not supply or retail mass produced symbols or letters for wax seals but concentrate rather on custom made ones designed for specific purposes. Each piece is entirely unique when it leaves our factory to you.

Sealing Wax

As for the sealing wax required to finish your project, we supply wax sticks in a variety of colours, as well as a handy sealing wax gun. If your project entails switching from one colour of wax to another, we also supply colourless sealing wax sticks to clean the applicator. If you have been looking for a one stop place to obtain your customised wax seal and accessories, you have come to right place at Stamps Plus.

Metal Stamps

We also make a large number and variety of metal stamps for pottery and clay applications as well as soap and even cookie baking. You can see one of our recent ones in the sliding gallery above. Just let us know of your requirements, send us your artwork, and we’ll get back to you with a quote and any suggestions on making the best impression.
