The British company that set up firms for international criminals

4 December 2019 by Christian Eriksson and others

Finance Uncovered worked with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), The Times and a host of other news organisations (see below) to shine a light on a murky corner of the UK’s corporate laws – an aspect that makes Britain so attractive to money launderers, fraudsters, and kleptocrats. The leak included the email accounts and client datasets of Formations House, a family-run corporate service provider that had been based at 29 Harley Street, a prestigious address in central London. The company had been plagued by reports linking it to international crime and even kleptocrats for years, most notably a major article by Oliver Bullough in the Guardian in 2016, which he later developed for a chapter of his book, Moneyland.
