Corporate Criminal Offences: practical advice and HMRC insights
The CCO legislation turned three years old at the end of September. In addition, the COVID-19 lockdown and resulting economic slowdown has led to an increased risk of fraud across many sectors of the world economy.

As in any downturn, those businesses that manage the risk of fraud best will see the least damage to their business, but this is doubly important for UK businesses this time as they now fall within the CCO. We are discussing what this means with the HMRC lead for CCO.

Criminal Corporate Offence (CCO) legislation is very wide in scope and applies to the failure to prevent the facilitation of UK and overseas tax evasion. CCO applies to all businesses, regardless of size. Although a strict liability offence which can lead to criminal prosecution and unlimited financial penalty, there is a defence of having implemented reasonable and proportionate prevention procedures.

Sam Dean, HMRC Lead for Corporate Criminal Offence, will cover:

• Implementation of CCO in HMRC
• Emerging results and HMRC investigations

Your BDO team will cover:
• Reminder of the legislation
• Practical and proportionate steps to response to the CCO legislation (SMEs vs large businesses
• Case study
• Quick wins: tools and training

There will also be an opportunity for questions.
