The SFO is committed to using all tools available to it in conducting its proceeds of crime work, and to ensuring that confiscation orders (arising from the cases it prosecutes) are satisfied in full. The SFO has a specialist Proceeds of Crime and International Assistance Division, whose work includes restraint, confiscation and enforcement, civil recovery, and money laundering investigations and prosecutions.</p><p> </p><p>A detailed breakdown of the SFO’s performance in recovering the proceeds of crime over the last five years is published on its website at: <a href="https://www.sfo.gov.uk/about-us/" target="_blank">https://www.sfo.gov.uk/about-us/</a>.</p><p> </p><p>In 2016-17, £25.4m of financial orders, compensation orders and civil recovery orders were obtained and over £20m was actually recovered in respect of previous orders obtained by the SFO.

Most of the net outstanding amount (88%) relates to just four out of 22 current orders.</p><p>The SFO estimate that their current realistic recoverable amount is between £10 - £12 million.[2] The amount that is currently assessed as unrecoverable comprises in the main hidden assets, unrecovered tainted gifts to associates, assets subject to third party claims or overseas assets.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><br></p><p>[1] Orders can be increased (s.22 POCA) and decreased (s.23 POCA) and the figures set out relate to the current order amount and not the original amount</p><p>[2] The figure provided above is the SFOs best estimate as of 04/07/2017.</p>
