I took a call from a close relative of a current and trusted client.
H+W to be directors and ahareholders. They are resident in France and want to set up a UK company to supply consultancy services. They intend to appoint adult son in UK to have a UK address and to open the company bank account.
UK business is negligible, mostly China/Africa
If the enquiry had come from a total stranger I would dismiss it for the smell, but after being recommended by a long-standing client I need to consider it seriously.
Friends, what are your thoughts - both technical and non-technical?
