    What is Corporate Fraud?

    Corporate fraud is a highly intricate area of the law, often characterised by misappropriation of funds. It encompasses deliberately dishonest actions carried out by businesses or individuals to deceive others, including lending companies or investors, for financial gain or to gain a competitive advantage. Corporate fraud can target both individuals and companies.

    These cases are often complex and may extend across international borders. Types of corporate fraud include:

    • Asset Stripping: The purchase of undervalued companies with the intent to profit by selling off their assets.
    • Wrongful Trading: When a business continues to operate while knowing it is insolvent, resulting in potential liability for directors.
    • Fraudulent Trading: Deliberately deceiving and defrauding creditors, classified as a criminal offence.
    • Money Laundering: The possession, use, or concealment of criminal assets, such as money or goods.
    • Tax Fraud: Involves tax evasion, VAT non-payment, or smuggling of taxable goods.
    • Investment Fraud: Schemes or deceptions affecting investments, including insider trading and share scams.
    • Boiler Room Fraud: Deceptive practices involving stock sales based on misinformation and coercion.

    Other corporate fraud types include account takeover, bankruptcy-related fraud, intellectual property fraud, and many more.
