The Swedish Economic Crime Authority investigates crime committed in connection with bankruptcies, tax crime, market abuse crime and fraud relating to the EU's financial interests.
We also work on other cases that require special knowledge of financial conditions, trade and industry conditions, tax law and similar.
Economic crime has discovered new pathways and methods in recent times. Special resources, experience and knowledge are required in order for us to successfully combat economic crime. There is also a need for more and better cooperation between organisations and authorities, as well as more international cooperation.
We also investigate crimes that could be economic crimes, but are not included in our main duties. For example:
- Breach of trust
- Receiving stolen money
