The Serious Fraud Office seeks to commit its specialist expertise to cases which have the greatest potential impact in disrupting and deterring serious fraud.
To help stakeholders understand where we are prioritising our resources, we have developed a list of strategic areas of focus. We aim to have at least 40% of our investigations and prosecutions fall within these focus areas, which will be reviewed and updated every 12 - 18 months.
This list does not represent our entire caseload and we continue to encourage and receive all complaints and referrals involving suspected serious or complex fraud. Any complaints or referrals we receive will be assessed against our statutory criteria, including the scale of the alleged crime, its impact on victims, its complexity and the degree of public interest.
