Following approval from Treasury Ministers, HMRC today publishes its strategic framework for tackling criminal finances. This document (executive summary and full version available from the links below) has been developed in consultation with other agencies and Departments involved in asset recovery and countering money laundering. It sets out the context and principles within which HMRC will seek to build on past performance. Through this framework, HMRC will make a continuing significant contribution to overall Government objectives and targets (including our own Public Service Agreement targets). The framework document complements and supports the corresponding plans published by the Home Office and Treasury respectively, which are also available from the links below.
