We hope you’ve been keeping well and are staying safe in your bubble.
In this August’s update, we are covering our latest highlights, updated guidelines from the AML Supervisors, and our newest team member!
A big thank you to everyone who came along to see us at ICNZB’s annual Bookkeepers Conference! We had a great audience attending our presentation, and it was awesome to see so many people rocking our new 2Shakes merchandise!

We all know alert level changes can cause disruptions to work routines and processes. Even so, with Biometric+Electronic ID Verification 2Shakes customers can still take on new business while meeting professional and legal compliance, even in Level 4 when we can’t meet face to face!
If you know another business that needs to take on new business remotely, remember you can help them by sending them your referral link in your My Account page. See our Referral Program to find out more.
Remember, 2Shakes provides you with a breakdown of statistics for customer types and ID verification methods, which will help you complete the report. Read more on AML Statistics in 2Shakes.
The AML Supervisors (DIA, FMA and Reserve Bank) have published a new explanatory note guideline for Part 3 of the Amended Identity Verification Code of Practice (IDVCOP). We have met with DIA and confirmed that our Biometric + Electronic IDV satisfies the updated explanatory note’s Additional Measures. So we have made that our default IDV method going forward. Standard electronic IDV can still be used where you are carrying out your own additional measures.
Remember to update your AML Programme appropriately to include new guidance and any procedural changes. If you have any questions regarding this change, please feel free to contact the Support Team.

Nau mai, Emilie.
