Annotation: The economic sphere is a specific sphere of public relations that is regulated by civil, tax, antitrust, and customs legislation. The violation of this legislation leads to the application of legal liability measures. The article is devoted to the topical problem of applying responsibility for economic offences. The author explores the legal nature of legal responsibility, examines the concept of legal responsibility, presented by various experts in the field of theory of state and law, and the principles that underlie the implementation of responsibility. The characteristic features of legal responsibility that distinguish it from other types of social responsibility are highlighted and described. The paper analyses various types of legal liability for economic wrongful acts. The special attention is paid to criminal, administrative and civil liability. The author examines certain features related to the basis of liability, its sources and subjects, as well as the features of the applied sanctions. Basing on the research, the author concludes that it is necessary to improve the institution of legal responsibility as a fundamental institution of the Russian legal system that regulates various spheres of relations, including economic legal relations.
