Fraud Act 2006

Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005

Paragraph 36 amends section 76 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 which concerns financial reporting orders. That section provides for a new ancillary order, available to courts at the point of sentence that will require offenders convicted of specified fraud and organised crime lifestyle offences to make such reports of their income and assets as the court sets out in the order. Paragraph 34 ensures that the offences in sections 1 and 11 of the Act can trigger the making of a financial reporting order and deletes the references in section 76 of the 2005 Act to the deception offences in sections 15, 15A, 16 and 20(2) of the Theft Act 1968 and sections 1 and 2 of the Theft Act 1978 that are repealed by the Act.

Paragraph 37 makes similar changes to section 78 of the 2005 Act which concerns financial reporting orders in Northern Ireland.
