Under the asset recovery incentivisation scheme, half of all assets recovered are returned to law enforcement and prosecution agencies involved in the asset recovery process.

The Home Office calculates quarterly the amounts to be allocated.

For cash forfeitures, civil recovery and taxation, agencies receive a 50% share of the money remitted to the Home Office.

For confiscation receipts, 50% of the receipts to the Home Office are split between the investigation, prosecuting and enforcing agencies in the following ratio: 18.7%: 18.7%: 12.5%.
