Account Freezing Order application successfully opposed

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

James O'Hara acted on behalf of a company whose bank account was subject to an application by HMRC for an Account Freezing Order. The account contained in the region of £500,000. The application involved an allegation by HMRC that the company was involved in laundering just under £5,000,000.

The on-notice application was opposed on the basis that the statutory test was not made out. Following submissions, the court ruled the application should not be granted and ordered HMRC to pay a portion of the respondent’s legal costs.

If you are being investigated by HMRC or have issues in respect of an Account Freezing Order, you can contact James at or on 0773 932 7158.
