Conduct: Valerie Helena Harrod (“Mrs Harrod”) failed to exercise reasonable care, skill and diligence as an appointed director of RK Corporate Rescue Limited (“RKCR”), RK Acquisitions Limited (“RKAL2”) and RK Client Account Limited (“RKCA”), in that she:

  • Agreed to be appointed as a director of RKCR, RKAL2 and RKCA (“the companies”) when asked by a third party about whom she knew nothing, without exploring services the companies would offer;
  • Is unable to explain what services the companies offered or what they did;
  • Opened bank accounts in the names of the companies on the instruction of the third party and then handed over all log in and bank account details to a different third party leaving herself unable to access or view the accounts;
  • Allowed the bank accounts to be controlled by an unknown third party;
  • Failed to take any steps to ensure the bank accounts were operated appropriately;
  • Allowed dispositions to be made after the presentation of the winding up petitions;
  • Failed to direct the trading activities of the companies and is unable to explain the trading history of the companies;
  • The companies were wound up by the Court on 27 February 2018 on the basis that they had traded contrary to the public interest. She failed to maintain, preserve and/or deliver up any accounting records for RKCR, RKAL2 and RKCA for the entire period in which they operated. As a result the Official Receiver has been unable to establish:
  • Whether all of the assets and liabilities of the companies have been disclosed to the Liquidator;
  • Exactly what the companies did and the services offered;
  • How the companies traded;
  • Who was controlling the affairs of the companies;
  • The reason for receipts into the companies bank accounts totalling Ł34,280;
  • The reason for payments made from company bank accounts totalling Ł33,853 and to confirm that the payments represented legitimate company expenditure.
