As part of the UK Government’s efforts to tackle tax evasion and following the enactment of the Criminal Finance Act 2017 (CFA) and publication of Government guidance for corporate offences of failure to prevent the criminal facilitation of tax evasion (Guidance), Brockwell has internal procedures and processes in place to mitigate the risk in relation to the criminal offences outlined by the CFA.
An offence is committed in the UK if a business engages in and/or fails to prevent its employees or any associated person from performing or facilitating tax evasion.
It is Brockwell’s policy to conduct all of our business in an honest and ethical manner. We take a zero-tolerance approach to facilitation of tax evasion, whether under UK law or under the law of any foreign country.
We are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate and implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter tax evasion facilitation.
We will uphold all laws relevant to countering tax evasion in all the jurisdictions in which we operate, including the CFA.
