Discussion / Workshop
Tackling Fraud at Companies House
Richard has worked in the corporate governance and company formation sector for nearly 20 years, with a close working relationship with Companies House. He’s witnessed the development of technology in these sectors and the evolution of the Companies House web filing services and with it came new ways for criminals to launder £90bn through the UK, hence the launch of his Robust campaign for increased integrity at Companies House.
Richard will walk us through recent activities in Government and Companies House, and how these are moving closer to improving due-diligence on the information that can be filed at Companies House.

Challenging & instructive agendas
The Senior Credit Management Forum members have significant input into meeting agendas, to ensure that sessions are relevant and cover key areas of common interest.
Sessions are delivered through workshops and discussions rather than lecture-style presentations.
We source and invite knowledgeable subject experts in order to ensure that content is of the highest standard.
Senior Credit Management Forum membership is open to senior finance & credit professionals. Membership is subject to acceptance of our membership terms & conditions.
Prospective members are invited to attend their first meeting free of charge and without obligation, to assess the benefits of membership for themselves. Thereafter the annual membership fee is £825 and covers all administration and meeting costs.
Members are responsible for their own hotel, accommodation and travel costs.
Membership is not just about meetings
We encourage members to draw on the network of peers provided by the Senior Credit Management Forum between meetings. There is an established electronic communications channel for members to ask questions and stay in touch with each other.
All members’ contact details are available on the restricted-access area of the forum website, from where copies of all meeting presentations and workshop outputs can also be downloaded.
A LinkedIn Group has been established, membership of which is strictly limited to forum members and genuine prospective members.
Senior Credit Management Forum (SMF)
The Senior Credit Management Forum (SMF) has been the leading peer group for senior finance & credit managers since 2006. It provides a unique community for members to meet, network and learn. The aim is to equip members with the practical strategies they need to meet the challenges of a changing business environment, and add value to their roles.
The objectives of the Senior Management Forum are to:
- share experiences and draw on each others’ knowledge
- develop and enhance best and new practice in credit and risk management
- improve skill levels
- provide access to a network of like-minded professionals and relevant industry experts.
