About this course

Business structures, including corporations, are intended to encourage enterprise and to protect honest entrepreneurs.

Trusts are intended to protect the assets of families from unlawful interference and other problems.

In each case there is also a measure of the modification of the tax position as against if such structures were not to be used: some of those changes benefit the company and its owners and others benefit the state.

However, as with all things, there are those that abuse the privileges that such structures afford them. They are used as vehicles for a wide range of criminal offences of which the most obvious – but far from the only – one is tax evasion.

Also, because these structures have an identity (in some cases they are, in law, a person), they are also the target for criminals.

In this course, we explain:

a) what corporations, trusts and other structures are
b) the terminology associated with them
c) the risks they present
d) the risks they face

and we do it all with context and historical perspective.

You will find out about asset forfeiture in 18th Century England, how capital flight was dealt with in 18th Century France – and see how much of what we imagine is recent has a long history.

You will learn the origins of trust law and why it is a cross-cultural phænomenon.

Also, you will learn why much of the criticism of certain professionals is unfounded – and where that criticism should be directed.

At the end, you will take an open book examination. If you achieve the pass-mark of 80%, you will receive a certificate and points towards the designation Certificate in Financial Crime Risk and Compliance (cFCRC)

The course is approximately the length of a two-day seminar but it is, of course, on demand. You have unlimited access, including any additions and updates, for 12 months and unlimited attempts at the examination. Your certificate for this course lasts for a year from the date of issue.
