Reporting a Crime

When a business has been the victim of a crime, or suspect they have been a victim of crime, it is essential that this is reported to the police.

Sometimes businesses are reluctant to report a crime as they may think it isn’t serious enough, it feels like a waste of time and effort to report it, or they are concerned about damage to the reputation of their business and losing the confidence of customers or clients. 

The National Business Crime Centre has produced guidance which not only deals with the how to report business crime, but also what services can be accessed when an employer or employee is a victim of that crime as well as advice on how to write an Impact Statement for Business (IBS), which  under the Victims’ Code, all businesses or enterprises (such as charities) that have had criminal offences committed against them are entitled to make.
