star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of prosecutions brought under the Fraud Act 2006. However, records are held showing the overall number of offences charged in which a prosecution commenced in the magistrates’ courts (the distinction being that some prosecutions involved multiple offences). These figures are detailed in the following table:</p><br /><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Number of offences charged under the Fraud Act 2006 in which a prosecution commenced in the magistrates’ court*</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009-10</p></td><td><p>27,759</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>29,592</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>28,164</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>26,581</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>25,832</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>26,113</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em>* Data Source: CPS management information system</em></p><br /><p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigates and, where appropriate, prosecutes the topmost tier of serious or complex fraud cases.
