A client opened a dormant company two years ago, for some reason they didn’t file a confirmation statement which was due nine months ago. They decided they didn’t want the company but also didn’t correctly deal with closing the company so just forgot about the company.
in the meantime he has received a summons to court and on the assumption he has very little defence here I assume he will be fined and given a criminal record.
although I fully understand a directors responsibility this seems very harsh for a dormant company which he decided he didn’t even want.
has anyone else also experienced this?
