Protecting your business from fraud
Steps to shield your firm from threats.
Fraud costs the Oxfordshire, Abingdon, Oxford, England, Swindon, Didcot, Reading, London, Southampton, Bristol, Slough, Birmingham and across UK around £190 billion a year, with businesses bearing almost three quarters – £140bn – of those losses.
This worrying picture is backed up by the 2019 Fraudscape report compiled by anti-fraud body Cifas, which provides statistics for fraud committed by employees. The report read:
“Dishonest action by staff to obtain a benefit by theft or deception was the most common type of internal fraud in 2018, accounting for 46%. The most prevalent form of dishonest action during the year was theft of cash from the employer.
“The second most common fraud type was theft of cash from a customer, which rose to 22% in 2018 compared to 17% in 2017.”
Fraud can be characterised as rule-bending, but for businesses struggling to manage cashflow it can have catastrophic effects.
Earlier this year, Patisserie Valerie, with a £40 million black hole in its finances, went into administration, saying in a statement that this was “a direct result of significant fraud”.
For smaller businesses in Abingdon, of course, it can take much less to cause serious cashflow problems.
