An important part of our work is contact and cooperation with other authorities and organisations.
The Swedish Tax Agency’s tax crime units represent the Swedish Economic Crime Authority in investigations involving tax crime and accounting crime. We also cooperate with Swedish Customs in preliminary investigations and prosecution of customs offences.
Other cooperating authorities include:
- The Swedish Enforcement Administration (Kronofogdemyndigheten)
- The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen)
- The Swedish Companies Registration Office (Bolagsverket
- The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brottsförebyggande rådet)
The Economic Crime Council, trade and industry organisations
The Economic Crime Council is mainly responsible for coordinating authorities at a central level. Effective regional cooperation is a significant part of crime prevention work.
We have regular contact with bankruptcy administrators and trade and industry, for example banks and other industry organisations, including the Auditors’ Association, FAR [the Swedish Institute of Authorised Public Accountants]. Occasionally, organisations that represent industries with problems associated with a black economy take the initiative to contact us or cooperate with us.
In 2008 the Swedish Economic Crime Authority founded a forensic council. The council's work is strategic and advisory. Among other things, it provides knowledge about different business environments.
The forensic council's work:
- Analyses the development within trade and industry
- Identifies new risk areas for economic crime
- Advises on specific competence which the authority needs in complicated investigations.
