Claire Cross writes for Pensions Age on the new powers of the Pensions Regulator

Partner Claire Cross has written an article for Pensions Age discussing the Pensions Regulator’s new tougher powers and what they mean for those investigated.

Claire writes, “Prosecuting pension related crime is not new ground for TPR; the regulator’s criminal powers are not solely limited to offences created by pensions legislation.  Indeed (unless otherwise restricted to a different specific prosecuting authority) TPR can investigate and prosecute any offence, provided that it would help TPR carry out its statutory functions or is incidental to carrying them out.   For example, TPR has prosecuted conduct relating to misusing or misappropriating scheme assets as a fraud under the Fraud Act 2006.”
