The Criminal Finances Bill was introduced to the House of Commons on 13 October 2016. It contains four parts: (i) Part one concerns the proceeds of crime, and makes amendments to existing legislation to investigations, money laundering, civil recovery and enforcement powers; (ii) Part two concerns terrorist property; (iii) Part three creates a new corporate offence of failure to prevent the facilitation of tax evasion; and (iv) Part four makes general amendments. The Bill follows the launch of the government’s Action Plan for anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist finance, which it published in April 2016, and its consultation on reform of the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing regime, the responses to which were also published this week.
