Hi, Thank you. In theory as it has been more than 7 years it should be removed from your record and you should be rehabilitated in the eyes of the law. That said there are certain background searches that will contain this kind of information. Certain regulated professions will take a dim view on dishonest crimes such as theft. As so much time has passed it may not be a complete bar for you, but I would highly recommend checking with the FCA first whether they will consider your application as there is no hard and fast rule as to whether they will accept it or not. Any positive feedback is gratefully received. I am happy to deal with any follow up point. Kind regards AJ
You are aware of how expensive it is to operate funds in tax havens? In the Channel Islands, Gibraltar. Turks and Cocos Islands etc it is big business and it doesn't come cheap. Big firms like Starbucks, Amazon and Vodafone may be able to run such organisations in a plethora of tax havens, but they are worth billions and their Corporation Tax bills are worth avoiding. If you are not in that league it might be better to forget it.
Have a look at www.unbiased.co.uk. This web site gives, as it's name suggests, an opening to Channel Island's possibilities.
