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. The SFO charges offences under the most appropriate legislation in each investigation, and not only the Fraud Act.</p><br /><p>The number of individuals charged by the SFO for offences under the Fraud Act (2006) is shown in the table below.</p><br /><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Number of individuals charged under the Fraud Act 2006*</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009</p></td><td><p>5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>4</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>6</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em>* This type of casework information for the years prior to 2012 was not collated centrally in the same way and so the information for these years reflects the records from the time. </em></p>
