YHFF™ MASTERCLASS: Using Companies House Data with a Critical Eye

On Wednesday 19 July 16.00

We are delighted to welcome Claire Jenkins, Companies House to the July Masterclass hosted by YHFF.


Claire Jenkins is a Forensic Accountant in the Integrity, Enforcement, and Intelligence Unit at Companies House. She joined the Civil Service after working within a wide range of businesses, ranging from SME’s to global multi-nationals.  Previous roles have seen Claire working in corporate business recovery as well as specialising in Tax and VAT work.  This gives her wide-ranging insight into business and accounts as a whole.

Claire is a qualified accountant and holds a MSc in Forensic Accounting, with her dissertation focussing on external fraud actors.   She is a triple award winner at the Tackling Economic Crime Awards, winning the Outstanding Female Professional award in 2019 and 2020 and the Outstanding Tackling Economic Crime Professional award in 2021.  She was recently appointed the Chair of ALEFA – the Association of Law Enforcement Forensic Accountants.

She has responsibility for analysing and investigating suspicious behaviour and represents Companies House on cross-government counter-fraud bodies, such as the Counter Fraud Champions Group and the Counter Fraud Analytics Forum.  She spearheaded a ground-breaking data sharing initiative which used the Digital Economy Act powers for the first time to enable sharing between CH and HMRC with the intention to reduce fraudulent data and identify behaviour patterns of interest. Through her work, she has gained valuable insights into the behaviours and actions of fraudsters – what they put in their accounts, what they do not, and what are areas to consider when trying to understand if a company should cause concern.  She is passionate about sharing these insights with a view to increasing knowledgeability and reducing the opportunity for fraud and error to take place and regularly presents masterclasses to other government departments on the anatomy of fictitious accounts.  To date, she has helped to identify and tackle over £300m of fraud.
