[2013] EWCA Crim 2601

A starting point of four years' imprisonment when sentencing a company finance director for fraud and conspiracy to defraud was not manifestly excessive; the amount of money involved could not be a determinative factor. In making a costs order of £8,000 against the director, the judge had been entitled to infer, in the absence of evidence of his means, that his financial position was reasonably comfortable and that he could afford to pay it: an inquiry into his means was not required.
