Seizures by Border Force and HMRC

In the event that you have had property seized by HMRC Border Force, in circumstances where you believe such a seizure to be disproportional or unlawful, then you can instruct us to challenge the decision on your behalf.

We can act for you in respect of seeking restoration or in the alternative at any condemnation proceeding with a view to having your property returned to you following formal notices of claim.

These matters need to be dealt with expediently, given that challenges must be brought within a one-month time period. Seizures can include property such as.

  • Jewellery
  • Shipping containers containing goods to be sold commercially
  • Vehicles
  • Hand luggage
  • Confectionary
  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
