New corporate criminal offences - Are you prepared?

Banks, companies and partnerships will be liable to prosecution, on a strict liability basis, if individuals or entities associated with them dishonestly assist others to evade tax. 

As with the Bribery Act, companies need to conduct full risk assessments, and develop new ‎policies and procedures specifically in response to those assessments. 

If this issue is not yet on your radar or if you are already engaging with it but would like further clarification and certainty, Hogan Lovells‎ will be holding a breakfast seminar on Thursday, 6 July at our offices and will be delighted to welcome Jennifer Haslett, Stacey Mills and Elizabeth Bailey  - the leads from HMRC (who will investigate any UK offences) and the Crown Prosecution Service (who will prosecute).

They will join a panel‎ including leading Hogan Lovells partners - Rupert Shiers (Head of European Tax Disputes)  and Claire Lipworth (Financial Crime  - former Chief Criminal Counsel at the FCA). Our partners have a deep experience of:

  • identifying tax risk, and contentious HMRC‎ discussions
  • risk assessments and developing policies and procedures
  • prosecuting and defending financial crime
It promises to be an illuminating and engaging discussion over breakfast, and an opportunity for you to ask questions.
Places are limited so please RSVP early to avoid disappointment. Register your interest here.
