We were approached by an accountant whose client had been arrested by the police at London Heathrow Airport with a sizeable quantity of cash.

They were accused of money laundering and threatened with criminal prosecution, however; our intervention was able to refute the allegation.


The reality was that the individual had been running a cash business, and whereas they were guilty of tax evasion, they were not money laundering. Acting on their behalf, we conducted negotiations with HMRC to enter into the contractual disclosure facility. The end result was the individual had to pay tax and a penalty, as opposed to facing a lengthy criminal enquiry and possible criminal prosecution.
