Money Laundering


Money Laundering Explained

Whether you are taking cash in hand, evading tax or embezzling funds, you could face accusations of money laundering. Our criminal defence solicitors in Brighton and Hove are here to advise you.

What Is Money Laundering?

Money laundering is a broad topic that generally boils down to involve any activities that make money or assets that were gained illegally appear to have legitimately entered the financial system. They do not have to be sophisticated schemes and can be as basic as taking cash in hand, but most will aim to avoid paying tax or draw unwanted attention from authorities. The most common forms of money laundering include:

  • Cash in hand transactions and not declaring them in tax returns
  • Opening business fronts to receive payment for services that aren’t provided to feed legitimate and criminally obtained money into the financial system
  • Smurfing, which splits a large sum of cash amongst several individuals who then make deposits in different financial institutions
  • Converting illegitimately earned cash to casino chips and using them to generate further earnings

When money is laundered, it typically comes from an illegitimate source, such as drug dealing, tax avoidance scheme, theft or cybercrime.

Taking cash in hand is quite common in the UK and, whilst legal, if you fail to declare it properly, you may be investigated. If you are uncertain whether you are the target of a money laundering investigation, our criminal defence solicitors can advise.

Why Use a Criminal Defence Solicitor for Money Laundering?

Governments across the globe have cracked down on illicitly gained money and punishments are severe with sentences for money laundering in the UK punishable by up to 14 years in prison. You do not have to be directly involved in money laundering to be investigated. If your business receives any proceeds of crime and profits from them, knowingly or not, you could face money laundering charges. Our criminal defence solicitors provide the following services:

  • Advice if you suspect you have inadvertently received proceeds of crime
  • Advice and representation in tipping off allegations
  • What to do in the event of a failure to report
  • Full representation for money laundering investigations and criminal charges
