Proceeds of Crime (POCA) and Confiscation Proceedings

Under the Proceeds of Crime Act, the Crown Prosecution Service can instigate confiscation proceedings if they believe, and the court decides, that you are living a criminal lifestyle.

So, not only will you be facing a term of imprisonment, your assets, including houses, cars, jewellery, watches, etc. will be valued and seized to settle the Confiscation Order.

We are able to guide you through this very technical process, and ensure that the CPS has not over valued your proceeds or your property; and where there is a dispute, we can engage our own approved and trusted forensic accountants.
