Economic Crime

CCAB launched its first Economic Crime Manifesto in 2016. Directed at Government, it highlights four key public policy areas for improvement of the effectiveness and capabilities of anti-money laundering (AML) in the UK. CCAB believes that professionally trained and qualified accountants are part of the solution to tackling Economic Crime with a commitment to report any identified or suspected money laundering activity to the Financial Intelligence Unit within the National Crime Agency.

In all of this, CCAB, and its bodies, are cognisant of the terrible but often-unreported harm done to the health, relationships, professional standing, family life and financial prospects of victims and innocent by-standers. The professional accountancy bodies and their members have a vital role in combatting this type of crime.
