What is the Corporate Criminal Offences Resources Toolkit?

Our CCO Resources Toolkit (CCORT) provides all the tools, templates and knowhow you need to help you respond to the UK’s Corporate Criminal Offences (CCO).

The CCORT includes a CCO risk assessment template with detailed guidance, CCO policies, internal and external communications, updates to contractual terms, due diligence procedures, contractor declaration forms and a CCO training deck.

The CCO Resources Toolkit walks you through compliance including what to consider when carrying out your own CCO Risk Assessment. Our policies align to HMRC’s ‘Six Guiding Principles’ of the CCO defence.

Our CCORT flyer provides full details of everything included in the Toolkit and how it will help your organisation meet the requirements of compliance.

The CCORT costs a flat fee of £2,250+ VAT.

Corporate Criminal Offences: Protecting your business

The simple steps to building a defence to the CCO legislation.

HMRC guidance is that an organisation must first carry out a documented risk assessment.

The Corporate Criminal Offences Resources Toolkit (CCORT) provides you with everything your organisation needs to complete your CCO Risk Assessment and then implement next steps, which typically include:

  • roll out of policies and procedures
  • internal and external communication with suppliers and associated persons
  • implementation of new processes and training.

In addition, the Full Toolkit also delivers guidance on potential areas of impact for your business to help you set priorities and allocate resources. The CCORT uses a clear and simple traffic light system.

Other solutions

Ensuring your staff and other associated persons understand their responsibilities is a critical control in building your response to the Criminal Finances Act.

We partnered with BDO to prepare the business for CCO because they provided a pragmatic and collaborative experience ensuring the training remained relevant to our business. We were very pleased with the content, it looked good and was easy to follow.
