On 22 September, the Home Office published a news release about the new Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill. This includes reforms to Companies House – its biggest upgrade in 170 years – and investigation and enforcement powers of Companies House will also be upgraded, enabling the organisation to cross check data with public and private partners, as well as reporting suspicious activity to security agencies and law enforcement. Factsheets, human rights memorandum and impact assessments are also available. The Law Society Gazette also reports that the Bill could give the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) unlimited powers to fine firms involved in facilitating economic crime.
