what is a CIB investigation?

CIB investigations are not carried out publically, however, they can impact on your business as information will be requested from your records, suppliers and customers. Our team are experienced in ensuring investigations are carried out smoothly and with as little disruption to your business as possible.

Prosecution following a CIB investigation usually leads to a warning or a fine. However, in more serious cases, penalties can include disqualification and a business being shut down.
