The offence is complete as soon as an individual fails to disclose information provided he was under a legal duty to do so, and that it was done with the necessary dishonest intent. It differs from the deception offences in that it is immaterial whether or not anyone is deceived or any property actually gained or lost.

When deciding on whether to prosecute an individual under this offence, consideration is given to the following factors during an investigation:

If an individual is prosecuted under this Ssection then it will be a matter for the judge to consider whether the facts as alleged are capable of giving rise to a legal duty to disclose information. The relationship giving rise to whether that duty existed will be a matter for the jury. For example, was there a solicitor/client relationship or an agent/principal relationship?
