The Fraud Review recommended that the Sentencing Guidelines Council (SGC) issue guidelines in respect of fraud offences. The SGC has indicated that it intends to issue guidance on sentencing under the new Fraud Act 2006. On 16 August 2007, the Sentencing Advisory Panel issued a consultation paper on sentencing for fraud offences. The consultation will close on 6 December 2007.
The Fraud Review also recommended increases in the maximum sentence for fraud offences. The Government are considering their response.
