The National Crime Agency (NCA) replaced the Serious Organised Crime Agency in October 2013 as the main agency for investigating and prosecuting serious and organised crime in the UK. The NCA has a wide remit, covering areas such as cyber crime, child protection and various types of organised crime. It has a specialist Economic Crime Command, which deals with, amongst other things, fraud.
In addition, the NCA’s UK Financial Intelligence Unit is responsible for collating and reviewing suspicious activity reports (SARs) submitted pursuant to money laundering requirements.
