New National Crime Agency (NCA) SAR Portal

Oct 06, 2023

What is the Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR) Portal?

This week Tina spotted that the new National Crime Agency (NCA) Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR) Portal was live and ready to take on registrations. 

For those not aware, the portal enables individuals to securely submit Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) to the UK Financial Intelligence Unit (UKFIU) positioned within the National Crime Agency (NCA).

If you are in any way suspicious of illegaly activity for Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing when working on a deal, you are LEGALLY REQUIRED to report this. 

Please note, the SAR Portal is only for reporting knowledge or suspicions of money laundering, or belief or suspicions relating to terrorist financing. Other non-emergency crimes should be reported by ringing 101.


Registering Your Sourcing Business

We have been waiting for this to be updated for a while, so good to see that it's now live - which means that any property sourcing agent, deal sourcer or deal packager needs to make sure they are registered to this portal EVEN if you are already registered with the previous portal. 

We checked and it takes just 5 minutes to register, so long as you have these details at the ready: 

  • Company Name
  • Registered Number 
  • Registered Address
  • Contact Name
  • Contact Email
  • Contact Phone
