Host: Nigel Barker
Presenters: Owen Gibbs, Annis Lampard, Emma Hardaker

The UK Government has introduced a new corporate criminal offence, affecting all companies and partnerships. Organisations will be automatically liable for unlimited fines and prosecution where their employees or other associates have facilitated tax evasion, unless they can demonstrate that they have assessed the risks around tax evasion facilitation and taken reasonable measures to prevent this. How should your organisation respond?

We'll discuss:

  • The corporate criminal offence and associated sanctions.
  • What factors organisations must consider in building their risk protocols.
  • Timeframes for responding to the corporative criminal offence.

Learn more about the scope and impact of this significant new measure.
