Conduct: Mr Karl Antony Wythe “Mr Wythe” failed to ensure that Sure Property Improvements Limited made all payments to HM Revenue and Customs “HMRC” as and when due in respect of VAT, CIS and Corporation Tax and caused the company to trade to the detriment of HMRC from at least 7 June 2016, in that:

  • The company was registered for VAT from 21 July 2014.
  • VAT returns were submitted for the periods October 2014 to January 2016 and paid on time.
  • VAT returns for the periods April 2016 to July 2017 were submitted with insufficient payments leading to an increasing VAT liability.
  • At the date of liquidation HMRC have submitted a claim of £187,041 in respect of VAT which includes surcharges.
  • The Corporation Tax return for the period 31 March 2016 was submitted showing tax of £7,000 was due. As payment was not made a penalty of £900 was issued. Payment of £100 was made on 23 May 2017 and the liability was reduced to £7,800.
  • HMRC have submitted a claim of £195,527 in respect CIS for the years 2016/17 and 2017/18 based on the returns and payments made with the exception of the periods September 2017 to December 2017 which were based on assessments. No payments were made for the year 2017/18.
  • On the 15 July 2016 during a conversation with HMRC he was made aware that £41,381 was owed in respect of VAT.
  • HMRC’s records confirm that he was in contact with them regarding the outstanding liability and a Time to Pay was arranged on the 17 January 2017, however this was cancelled shortly after as the current liability was not being paid.
  • HMRC have submitted a claim in the liquidation totalling £391,308 and are the majority creditor.
  • The company had 1 bank account with Barclays. Analysis shows that from the last accounts (to 31 March 2016) sales received were £1,273,481 and payments totalled £1,358,418 of which payments to HMRC were £51,231. The remainder of the payments were made to employees, sub-contractors and suppliers.
  • The trade creditors listed in the Statement of Affairs show that they are owed money from June/ July 17. The liability to HMRC accrued from April 2016.
