In this ICAEW Insights podcast we examine the government’s new Health and Social Care Levy, look at the rising tide of ransomware, and outline how the pandemic has changed fraud in the charity sector.

On the show ICAEW Tax Faculty’s Lindsey Wicks outlines the details of the government’s new health and social care levy and talks us through the Office for Tax Simplification’s report on the costs and benefits of moving tax year away from 5 April.

Ahead of Charity Fraud Awareness Week (18 – 22 October 2021), Mia Campbell, Head of Fraud Advisory Panel and Kristina Kopic, Head of Charity and Voluntary Sector, ICAEW tell us about fraud in the sector, how the pandemic has changed criminals’ behaviour, and how charities should react if the worst happens.

And Eleanor Fairford, the National Cyber Security Centre’s Deputy Director for Incident Management, tells us about the rising tide of ransomware, and how chartered accountants can protect themselves and their businesses.
