Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi.Can you give me some more detail about the competition you won a sum of money from please. How much have you won? How did you pay the release fee? How much was this exactly?
Hi Thank you for your swift response. as i explained, this award prize money was in relation to a prize draw or raffle as i can put it based on my email address as i purchased a ticket this year to South America by an IATA Travel Agent. This was a draw or Promotion from ARAB AIR CARRIERS ORGANISATION where 50 people around the world have won. The amount in question is £700,000. I have to pay the Inland Revenue a total of £5,500. This is a tax which i have to pay which will then allow me to either collect the cheque outside the EEC or through wire transfer to my Bank. The amount as mentioned, has been deposited in a Bank at the receiving end awaiting my confirmation. Kindly revert back. Thanks
Hi, Thanks This is genuine as i have the option to go directly and pay this . If did receive a cheque from the winning body and deposited it into my account, would that still be classified as money laundering. Based on the amount I've mentioned, how much is the tax percentage if you could advise me on that. Thanks and regards,
