The Serious Fraud Office has launched an investigation into alleged fraud at the Taupo District Council, but would not reveal the reason for the inquiry.

SFO acting chief executive Simon McArley today confirmed the agency was investigating the council after a complaint had been lodged.

"We have received complaints in relation to matters relating to Taupo District Council, " McArley said.

"The SFO is continuing its investigation of those matters but is unable to provide any further detail in relation to them at this time."
