Conduct: Emile Valentine Straker (“Mr Straker”) failed to ensure that Esky Enterprises Limited met its financial commitments as regards Corporation Tax (“CT”) and Value Added Tax (“VAT”); causing Esky Enterprises Limited to trade for his personal benefit and to the detriment of HM Revenue and Customs (“HMRC”). As a result, the company became unable to meet its financial commitments to HMRC as and when they became due; at the latest from 01 November 2015 to 16 February 2018 when the director states the company ceased trading. In that:-

  • At 31 January 2015 the company’s accounts showed liabilities in respect of HMRC totalling £39,520. At 31 January 2016 the accounts showed the debt to HMRC had increased to £86,643. No further accounts were prepared.
  • At the date of the winding up order on 27 June 2018, the liabilities to HMRC had increased to £104,415. A post cessation of trade VAT assessment had been raised by HMRC for the period 30 April 2017 for £4,242. The Official Receiver has excluded this assessment. To date HMRC has not lodged a final proof of debt.
  • The only other creditor in the liquidation is Companies House who are owed £1,500 in respect of the late filing of company documents.
  • Company bank statements delivered up by him show that between 01 November 2015 and 09 March 2017 (being the date when the last deposit was received into company bank account) the company’s receipts were at least £152,280.
  • Of the £152,280 deposited, £115,380 was transferred into his personal account. Of the £115,380, £11,200 has been deducted for his income.
  • Of the £152,280 deposited into the company bank account, he personally benefited from £104,180 and HMRC were paid £37,499 in respect of Corporation tax, VAT and PAYE.
