Enemy Property - On April 3, 1998, the British Dept. of Trade & Industry published the names of 25,000 asset owners (from an original list of 220,000) whose property was confiscated between 1939 and 1945 by the Custodian for Enemy Property pursuant to wartime Trading with the Enemy legislation.

Affected by seizures were companies and citizens of "belligerent enemies" - countries who had declared war on the U.K. (Germany, Hungary, Romania & Bulgaria); as well as "technical enemies," occupied nations like Czechoslovakia and Poland.

In response to an admission that documentation had been destroyed, the British government established a Payment Scheme in March of 1999 to compensate victims. The claims submission period ended September 30, 1999. If you believe you have valid claim but missed the deadline, phone +44 (0)207 215 3485 or fax +44 (0)207 215 3487. Details on at least 30,000 accounts are available at:  or contact via e-mail:
