Kangs Solicitors has successfully represented a company director summonsed to Cardiff Magistrates’ Court in relation to alleged offences under Sections 441 & 451 of the Companies Act 2006 for failure to lodge his company’s accounts with Companies House on time over a number of years.
The Circumstances | Kangs Director Disqualification Team
- Our client, was a gentleman of exemplary character, who had been employed in a multi-national company throughout most of his working life.
- Thereafter, as a result of a change in his domestic circumstances, he had taken early retirement and commenced consulting work through his own company.
How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Company Procedure Advisory Team
- Having taken extensive instructions from our client in relation to the commencement of his company, the arrangements for filing the company’s papers and the reasons leading to the problems he now faced, we commenced a line of communication with the prosecuting authorities.
- Detailed representations were prepared and submitted highlighting the reason for non-compliance and the issues which placed matters out of our client’s control.
- As all company records had been brought up-to-date and all the penalties raised had been paid extensive representations were submitted emphasising why it was not in the interests of justice that our client should be prosecuted.
The Successful Outcome | Kangs Companies House Investigations Solicitors
- The representations were considered by the prosecuting authority and the proceedings were withdrawn.
- Our client was advised that there was no need for him to attend the court hearing.
- No costs application was made against our client.
Our client was naturally delighted, overjoyed with the result, and appreciative of the work undertaken by Kangs Solicitors in a very short space of time to ensure this result could be obtained on his behalf.
