In October 2011 HMRC issued a winding-up order against the company, despite the company offering over seven different various time to pay repayment schemes. The bank put the company into administration after HMRC refused any deal whatsoever.
A new 'stand-alone' company was formed in 2011 with different roles for the former director and company secretary and has traded from that point till now and beyond.
A request was made for a VAT inspection on the new company in 2015 (March). We declined the first visit due to illness and another has been arranged for May 2015 but in conversation with the VAT Inspector he stated that HE HAD REFERRED TO THE FILE ON THE PREVIOUS COMPANY AND THEIR TAX ISSUES AND IF THEY HAD ANY IN THE NEW COMPANY THIS WOULD BE CONSIDERED?
We are not sure why there is even a file on the previous company when it was liquidated in 2013??
Surely, there is a case for pre-judgement and influence here?
