The Government is committed to tackling economic crime. We know this requires a multi-agency response and that is why both the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) play their part, alongside others, including through their support of the new multi-agency National Economic Crime Centre (NECC).

The NECC, which has been operational since October 2018, will drive the tasking and coordination of the UK's response to economic crime. It will access the full range of capabilities available to ensure the right tools are used by the right agencies at the right time - ensuring that economic crime is tackled in the most effective and impactful way.
