MY business partner who is not a director of the company took takings from the company & refused to bank the taking (I have an email from him stating that). I went to the Police & they told me that it was a civil matter. I believe it is theft or fraud & can anyone verify that

According to my understanding of NSW definition of fraud, if there is "deception" or "dishonesty" that ends in gains of money of items of monetary value, then it is fraud.

So my guess would be that if no one knew they were doing that, then it is fraud.

And the case of theft has more to do with whether or not they were allowed to do with the money what they did. I would assume from your post, that they did take this money illegally.

That is as close to a verification as I can get.

If he has taken money belonging to the business and refused, by e-mail, to give it back, there is a suggestion that he was owed or believed he was owed something by the business and has taken the law into his own hands to seize some company money.

Is he in dispute with you? What are the details?
