There is nothing illegal in transferring this money but I can tell you now that if you simply put it in your account, the account will be frozen for months while the bank do money-laundering checks and report the matter to the Serious Organised Crime Agency as suspicious activity and they will take weeks and weeks investigating it until they are satisfied that the money is clean and only then will the money be released.
Further, the bank will not tell you that’s the problem, they will just blame all sorts of admin problems. They are not allowed to tell you because that is classed as “tipping off” which is a criminal offence.
You therefore need to clear all this with the bank first and tell them exactly where the money is coming from. They are likely to want to see all the bank accounts including where the money has been lodged for the last couple of years. Yes, it’s going to be a pain in the backside but that’s what’s got to happen if you don’t want to cause any problems.
Otherwise, the money will end up frozen for months.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
