UK: The Criminal Finances Act 2017

A copy of the Criminal Finances Act 2017, which became law last month, has now been published: see here or here (pdf). Part 3 contains two new corporate offences: the failure to prevent the facilitation of UK tax evasion offences (section 45); and the failure to prevent the facilitate of foreign tax evasion offences (section 46). It is for the Treasury to determine when Part 3 will be brought into the force (section 58).
