The USA PATRIOT Act creates an indirect route by which any financial institution or trading company using US dollars is subject to US law. The result can be confiscation of assets.

OFAC is a US government department that administers sanctions. It has developed a way to make those sanctions operate against non-US businesses.

The Bank Secrecy Act applies to all financial services businesses with operations in the USA.

The Anti Boycott Office exists to create sanctions against businesses that give effect to any sanctions against Israel.

If you don't know about these issues, your business is at risk.
