Conduct: Between at latest 23 August 2019 and liquidation on 2 August 2022 Michael Edward Eames (“Mr Eames”) acted as a director of JLE Havant Ltd (“JLE”), in breach of a disqualification undertaking. In that: Following an investigation into his conduct as a director of a previous company, Mr Eames signed a voluntary undertaking in which he agreed, amongst other conditions, not to act as a director of a limited liability company for a period of six years, from 6 February 2019 to 5 February 2025. Mr Eames subsequently applied to the Court for leave to continue to act as a director of JLE under section 17 of the CDDA. The Court granted his application to continue to act as a director of the company on 2 August 2019 (“the Section 17 Order”) The Section 17 Order that granted Mr Eames leave to act as a director of JLE set out a number of conditions that should be adhered to maintain leave to act as a director. Mr Eames was first appointed as a director of JLE on 24 January 2012 and continued to act as a director until liquidation. Between 23 August 2019 and liquidation at least the following conditions of the S17 order were breached: A condition that JLE should pay all sums due to HMRC in respect of PAYE/NIC on or before the due date. Between monthly period July 2019, first due on 22 August 2022 and monthly period May 2022, JLE incurred outstanding HMRC liabilities of at least £448,535 in respect of PAYE/NIC. None of the monthly PAYE/NC periods were paid in full with only one payment of £312 made toward the liabilities. . A condition that JLE should pay all sums due to HMRC in respect of VAT on or before the due date. Between quarter ending August 2019, first due for payment on 22 October 2019, and quarter ending May 2022 VAT of £479,548 was incurred. No VAT was paid in respect of these periods. A condition that JLE should file all tax returns on time and when due. JLE failed to submit its VAT return for the period ended 29 February 2020 to HMRC, which was due by 7 April 2020 The Section 17 Order stipulated that if at any time all of the stated conditions were not satisfied, then the permission to act as a director would automatically lapse unless an application for new permission was submitted within 14 days. No further application was submitted by Mr Eames and therefore S17 leave to act lapsed on 23 August 2019 when the July 2019 PAYE/NIC debt became overdue for payment. Mr Eames continued to act as a director of JLE after that while disqualified as a director. The identified breaches of the Section 17 Order continued during the period from 23 August 2019 until liquidation on 2 August 2022.
