Account Freezing Order Success

By David Bloom  |  20.02.2023

Our client, a successful businessman and his wife based abroad, had their UK bank account containing more than £330,000 frozen following an application to Westminster Magistrates’ Court by HMRC.

Once instructed, we provided detailed evidence – including from our client, and his business and personal tax advisers – and applied precision pressure on HMRC. Far from being the proceeds of crime, we were able to demonstrate that the bank account contained the proceeds of legitimate business and personal activity.

Our clients were delighted that HMRC conceded in February 2023 and applied to the Court to discharge its own Account Freezing Order.

David Bloom of Sonn Macmillan Walker instructed Jonathan Lennon KC of Doughty Street Chambers.
