The Bribery Act 2010 provides the four main offences:
1. giving or offering a bribe
2. receiving or requesting a bribe
3. bribing a foreign public official (also known as facilitation payments)
4. negligently failing to prevent a bribe (corporate offence).
Under the Bribery Act, an offence has been committed even if no money or goods have been exchanged and a bribe has no minimum value.
