HM Treasury's engagement with, and support for, the Overseas Territories.

Document

Detail

The United Kingdom has responsibility for 14 Overseas Territories, 11 of which are permanently inhabited.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office takes the overall lead on managing the UK’s relationship with its Overseas Territories, but all following recommendations made by the Government’s National Security Council in 2011, HM Treasury has produced a paper on the department’s engagement with, and support for, the Overseas Territories in its areas of competence and expertise.

The document includes examples of HM Treasury engagement with, and support for, the Overseas Territories in key areas including support for economic and financial risk management; tax and customs; financial regulation; and anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing regimes.
