STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE CRIMINAL FINANCES ACT 2017 (CFA)

Grindeys llp is committed to fighting tax evasion and it has rigorous policies and procedures in place to detect and prevent the facilitation of tax evasion offences.

Grindeys llp provides regular training on the requirements of the CFA to all its employees.

Grindeys llp requires all employees to demonstrate the highest standards of honesty at all times and it will take appropriate disciplinary action wherever tax evasion or the facilitation thereof by any employee has been proven.

Grindeys llp undertakes due diligence on all associated persons/companies to mitigate the risk of facilitation of tax evasion offences and, as part of its due diligence procedures, all agreements with third parties contain suitable provisions to enable termination of such agreements where associated persons/companies do not comply with the provisions of the CFA.
