Did you know, if your suppliers or contractors are evading tax, your business could be prosecuted and face unlimited fines by failing to prevent it.

Financial risk goes beyond the cashflow of your suppliers. Buyers should be conducting due diligence on their suppliers financials, including where you pay invoices, to better manage risk and compliance in the supply chain.

From corporate crime to compliance

In this webinar we are joined by Paul Marshall, Partner at Brodies LLP, who will discuss corporate crime in the supply chain, the Failure to Prevent act and the increased risk of non-compliance during COVID-19.

Paul has more than 15 years’ experience conducting and managing internal investigations for clients when something has gone wrong in their business. He advises and supports clients facing investigation by the police and specialist regulators. He understands the importance of working in collaboration with regulators and authorities while protecting client interests.  He advises international clients on how to comply with the regulatory regime in Scotland and regularly works as part of a team across multiple jurisdictions.

Procurement professionals, buyers, risk and compliance managers will all benefit from learning about the UK Failure to Prevent act and how developing a robust due diligence plan will be an integral part of your supplier pre-qualification programme to manage risk and compliance in the supply chain.
