Why the client needed our help
The client was a foreign student studying at a London university, and used a unregulated foreign exchange agent to convert their currency. HMRC suspected that the client was involved in a money laundering operation and froze their bank account.
How we helped
We successfully proved the source of the funds exchanged and lifted any suspicion which HMRC previously held
HMRC agreed by consent to withdraw the freezing without the need for any court applications.
FWJ did precisely what it set out to do. I am extremely grateful for its assistance.A client who had received a Request for Security from HMRC for a sum that would have caused their company severe financial difficulties. We helped them to have the entire bill withdrawn
