The NaVCIS Fraud unit is funded through the members of the Finance and Leasing Association (FLA) which is the industry body overseeing vehicle financing.

Referrals are submitted by the members for the NAVCIS team to investigate and develop intelligence prior to dissemination to a police force for further action.

Over 3500 vehicles in UK and abroad, with a combined value in excess of £45 million, have been recovered since operations opened in 2007.
