E-Learning Course Content:
Criminal Finances Act 2017
The Criminal Finances Act is part of the UK government’s strategic approach to reducing financial crime. It targets corruption, money laundering and tax evasion, and also aims to recoup more criminal assets by making it easier to seize funds obtained through criminal means.
The Act places further responsibilities on senior members of an organisation who can be held to account for ‘failing to prevent’ the offences.
An offence is committed if a firm (known as the relevant body) fails to prevent someone who is acting on their behalf or for them, knowingly facilitates tax evasion, either in the UK or in a foreign country.
In simple terms, this means that every employer has an obligation to actively discourage their employees assisting customers evade tax.
This course is suitable for anyone that needs to help ensure employees are discouraged from helping customers evade tax and commit financial crime. This could include:
- Counter Staff
- Bank or Credit Workers
- Retail Assistants
- Call Handlers
- Sales Representatives
- Business Development Managers
- General Employees
It’s an online e-learning course you can add to your own LMS, intranet or internet site.
