SR Search report – The Criminal Finances Act
The Criminal Finances Act 2017 was passed in the final days of the last parliament and is expected to come into force before the end of this year. The legislation includes reforms to the Suspicious Activity Reporting regime, introduces Unexplained Wealth Orders, and creates new corporate offences of failing to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion.
In this series of articles, we assess the likely impact of the legislation on the legal profession. Based on our original research and interviews with practitioners across the business crime and investigations sphere, this series draws together opinions as to what implementation may look like in practice and what this could mean for law firms.
The series of articles combined forms a publication we have produce that is split into the following areas:
- Tightening the Net Part 1: Suspicious Activity Reporting Regime
- Tightening the Net Part 2: Unexplained Wealth Orders
- Tightening the Net Part 3: The Corporate Offences
