A conviction for fraudulent trading can result in serious repercussions for any individual or business.
Consequences can include substantial financial penalties and long prison sentences, a criminal record and irreparable damage to your reputation or that of your business, with prosecutors regularly pursuing charges in cases where a defendant has simply acted naively or made a series of poor decisions.
