Moldovan accountant gave unregulated immigration advice

She was fined £2,000 for eight counts of providing unregulated immigration advice.

Tatiana Balan is a Moldovan national living in London. She was also ordered to pay £2,430 in costs. 

Her firm's name was Quickbook Taxation, Hendon. Between January 2011 and September 2013, she submitted over 400 work permit applications to the Home Office mainly for Romanian and Moldovian nationals. This was prior to the change in January 2014 of the immigration rules, allowing Romanian and Bulgarian citizens to exercise their Treaty Rights.

US citizens in the UK (and there are several hundred thousand; not just Boris Johnson) can also just start filing US tax returns for the 2014 calendar year; but have an extended deadline of 15 June 2015 to file US returns.
