Hello Martin my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did you file the accounts, I assume not?
Was the Company in liquidation by the time the accounts were due?
thanks for the reply.
Happy to help. I may be on and offline as I am travelling on the train at present
no we did not file accounts and no the company was not formally in liquidation but did cease trading in June 2014 before the accounts were due.
To be honest I cant remember but probably not....it has all been very stressful and I also have personal finanicial issues
due to the business failing which has lead to depression.
The liquidator was appointed before Christmas but we are still providing all the info they need.
I am sorry but it is bad news. You are guilty of the offence. If you are required to submit company documents and they have not been provided that is enough. Sadly Companies House had provided reminders and these were not complied with. If it has been that the Company had been liquidated then the matter would have stopped
But sadly on the basis that the liquidation process is still ongoing then you should have supplied the accounts even if they are 0
In Court you will only get a financial penalty nothing more
I am sorry if this is not the answer you are after and it is certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
