Bodies such as the National Crime Agency, HMRC etc have powers to investigate whether an individual’s wealth represents proceeds of crime. One of the key tests is where a person has wealth which it seems unlikely that they could have generated from their own income. An obvious case is inherited wealth.

Prevention is better than cure and where wealth is inherited, especially in a multi-jurisdictional context, trying to prove source of funds or wealth can be difficult especially where the wealth was generated in an age where everything was done on paper as opposed to electronic form.

We can help marshal evidence look for corroborative evidence and bring together the family’s economic history, just in case a regulatory body, in the UK or elsewhere, asks the questions they are entitled to ask.

We can also advise on what your obligations are, and the powers authorities have in such cases.
