Our guidance (which shouldn't be much different) is that it only
applies to certain kinds of advice or transaction.

So, if you came to me to ask me advice concerning an employment
dispute, there'd be no money laundering implications and I would not
have to carefully check your identity. If, on the other hand, you
wanted me to help you start a company, I might well have to do that.
