Tackling
Economic Crime

Economic Crime Manifesto

We continue our work in this area with our second Economic Crime Manifesto (2021) by urging government to lead by example to fight money laundering.

In our Manifesto, we highlight areas of change to improve the effectiveness and capabilities of the fight against Economic Crime in the UK.

CCAB believes that professionally trained and qualified accountants are part of the solution to tackling Economic Crime.

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.
