About this product

Aligned to HMRC's Six Guiding Principles


“We were very pleased with the output from the CCO Resources Toolkit. This has been shared at Board level and we are using the templates to update our controls.”

  1. RISK ASSESSMENT
    Before any other actions, you must document a CCO risk assessment. The CCORT provides a CCO Risk Register template with detailed guidance for completion.
  2. TOP LEVEL COMMITMENT
    You must demonstrate involvement at a senior level. The CCORT provides a template Board paper with detailed guidance on completion.
  3. DUE DILIGENCE
    Due diligence is a key area of control and a current focus for HMRC. The CCORT will update and improve your “supplier take-on” process to align with HMRC guidance.
  4. PROPORTIONALITY
    The CCORT helps you determine the level of impact of the CCO legislation on your business. Your prevention procedures must match the level of risk, based on the size and complexity of your business.
  5. COMMUNICATION
    All organisations must raise awareness of CCO legislation both internally and externally. The CCORT provides the templates you need. You can also purchase separately a CCO eLearning Module.
  6. MONITOR AND REVIEW
    The CCORT provides guidance on monitoring and reviewing the CCO processes and defences you have established.
