  • Money Laundering Checks are required for professional services by law because the UK is a major international financial and legal centre, with a strong reputation for honesty and integrity. When we take on a new client or begin to give a new consultancy you are essentially an unknown entity and we have to ensure that we are fully compliant. Businesses like ours are attractive to money launderers - criminals who sometimes try to hide stolen money by turning it into legitimate income. Therefore, the government has introduced measures to make it more difficult for criminals to make and keep money from their crimes, to confiscate the proceeds of crime for this reason there are compulsory checks as tax consultants we must make of our clients. Being asked for identification does not mean you are under suspicion, the new identification requirements apply to all clients.

  • We carry out an online check using ComplianceAssist you will verify your identity and relate this back to us.

  • Arthur will take payment at the end of the consultation by a credit/debit card.

  • If the consultation exceeds 30 minutes, then any time thereafter will be prorated at an hourly rate of £175 per hour.

  • The minimum cost for a consultation is £97. This means that if your consultation takes 10 minutes or 25 minutes then the cost will still be £97. The standard consultation charge is £175 per hour; it is not possible for Arthur to determine how long you will speak for at the beginning of the call. If it takes part of an hour e.g. three quarters of an hour, you will be charge pro rata, i.e. around £131.25.

  • This is completely fine, and the time spent on providing the written advice will be charged at £175 per hour. At the beginning of the phone call Arthur will always offer the option of providing the consultation in writing also which can be provided via e-mail in form of a summary of the phone conversation. This will need to be confirmed again at the end, as with the consultation how long this will take is often unknown but depending on the details of the phone conversation, but it can take anywhere up to 30-45 minutes.

  • Any follow up questions will be charged at the same rate as described above, the standard price of £175 per hour.
