my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
So because you used her bank account they are saying you have been overpaid, is that right?
They are saying that she has been overpaid, she is a pensioner and receives housing benefit. All the money that went through her account was my money but they are saying she has earned an income
Sadly I think you have a number of issues.You were using someone else's account own purposes, this is money laundering.
Every invoice from my suppliers are in my name and get delivered to my house. I have an accountant that deals with my end of year tax returns. I have bound copies of these that are in my name, I have paid tax on this money.
You should have gotten your own bank account, you didnt need credit facilities it would have been possible to get a basic account.
I was told in the start that it was o.k to do this by the accountant as long as everything tallied
No its not ok to do
I already had 1 account and got some CCJ's against my name, the bank would not let me get another account as I was high risk
Its money laundering
So you are saying the accountant advised me to break the law
So what shall I do?
Sadly if it went through her account they are entitled to consider it as income
You need to go in with your accountant to the Job Centre and explain
You then need to get yourself a new account
It is illegal what you are doing, it is money laundering
She can appeal the decision on Council Tax and benefit, it would go to a Trinbunal
You and the accountant can go there too and explain
But you must get yourself a new account
I already have a new account
I am sorry if this is not the answer you are after and this is not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything about this today please?
