Movements of cash and other means of payment have been given renewed attention from the viewpoint of the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing. Evidence concerning the increasing use of large amounts of cash in criminal schemes resulted in the introduction in 2003 of the obligation of declaring certain movements of means of payment.

This section defines the means of payment subject to the obligation of prior declaration and details the obligations of natural persons who, either on their own behalf or on behalf of third parties, perform the movements of means of payment referred on Law 10/2010 of 28 April, on the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing.
