Criminal Finances Act

The Criminal Finances Act 2017 came into force with effect from 30 September 2017.

Glasgow Caledonian University and its UK and overseas operations are committed to preventing the facilitation of tax evasion by associated persons anywhere in the world. We do this through developing reasonable procedures, carrying out regular due diligence and risk assessments of our activities and creating awareness and a culture of compliance throughout the University.

The University operates to the highest legal and ethical standards and will not tolerate acts of criminal facilitation of tax evasion by its associates. Staff and other associates should abide at all times by University policies including the Criminal Facilitation of Tax Evasion Statement. Failure to comply with the obligations detailed in the Statement and other University policies may result in disciplinary action for staff and termination of contract for other associated persons.

The University’s Criminal Facilitation of Tax Evasion Statement, which includes information on what staff and other associates must do should they become concerned or aware of the facilitation of tax evasion, can be viewed here:
