An employee working for an enterprise that trades within a university (a charity) has gone and registered this enterprise under their name and address with companies house and has appointed themselves as director. They are still under contract with the university for their work to the enterprise. Can this person be lawful removed from this company? what is the process for this removal?
it maybe worth mentioning that the film production unit in question was with the same name. This was done with no knowledge of the university and was done secretly, it was discovered because someone informed me which prompted me to check. The unit has been running for 4 years and continues to trade through the university.
thank you for getting back to me. The enterprise is called MILE END FILMS the employees title was producer of video content for Mile End Films. So yes directly connected. She registered it under the same name MILE END FILMS ltd. As far as we are aware no other assets have been taken. She is still working under that title.
the name relates to the road on which the university resides and has had a successful 4 years of producing outstanding work. hope this helps.
Yes, Mile End Films is used as a trading name by the university for all work that is produced by Mile End Films.
There is no way of knowing if she has started trading the company Mile End Films Ltd. If she has its would be through work that came to the unit and then processed through mile end films ltd. but without an investigation into this there is no way at this point that i can be sure of this.
The company was originally registered with companies house as Mile End Films Ltd and due to a misunderstanding was dissolved. On the day it was dissolved, she registered it under her name.
