In line with international developments, legislative measures to combat aspects of organised crime such as money laundering are being stepped up in the SADC region. However, gaps in knowledge still remain regarding the nature and extent of money laudering within the SADC states-making it difficult to formulate appropriate strategies. This paper is based upon both telephonic and written surveys of auditors employed by four major multinational auditing firms in seven southern African countries. The paper explores auditors' insight and experience of money laundering as well as the potential role that the auditing profession can play in combating it.
