Conduct: That during May 2020 Juiliano Akeel Hussain (“Mr Hussain”) applied for a Government backed Bounce Back Loan (“BBL”) of £50,000 in the name of Rupert Design & Packaging Ltd (“The Company”) when he knew, our ought to have known, that the company turnover did not support such an application and that information supplied to support the application was false. The BBL criteria allowed a company to borrow between £2,000 and a maximum of £50,000 based on 25% of the company’s turnover for 2019. The funds could only be used to provide economic benefit to the company and not for personal purposes. Mr Hussain stated on the application that the turnover of the company was £267,500 and that the company would like to borrow £50,000 under the BBL scheme. Analysis of the one known company bank account shows that the account was opened, and that the first account transactions inclusive of receipt of the BBL monies were credited, 5th May 2020. Unaudited abridged accounts signed by Mr Hussain for the period 9th April 2019 to 30 April 2020, filed at Companies House 5th July 2021, show shareholder funds of (£30,627). Despite requests by the Insolvency Service Mr Hussain has failed to evidence or satisfactorily explain the company trading position and turnover prior to 5th May 2020. Mr Hussain has failed to evidence or satisfactorily explain how the £50,000.00 BBL monies were used. That during August 2020 Mr Hussain made three separate claims through the Eat Out To Help Out scheme (“EOTHO”) totalling £91,029.46 in the name of The Company when there is no evidence to support that the company owned, or operated, a qualifying establishment, or if it did, that the level of the claims were accurate. The EOTHO scheme was open to businesses who registered their establishment for the scheme and offered discounts of 50% on food and non-alcoholic drinks to diners on Mondays to Wednesdays between 3 and 31 August 2020. The businesses could claim back the discount given on food and non-alcoholic drinks up to a maximum of £10 per diner. Three separate claims were submitted to HMRC by Mr Hussain on behalf of the Company, using the EOTHO scheme registration number of EOR186081 as follows: Claim EOC411273 for period 17th to 19th August totalling £37,888.24 for 4083 diners. Claim EOC464991 for period 24th to 26th August totalling £38,920.79 for 4115 diners. Claim EOC489132 for period 31st August only totalling £14,220.43 for 1481 diners. Mr Hussain has confirmed that the EOTHO claim related to the Al-Madina, 76 Wilmslow Road, Rusholme, Manchester, M14 5AL. Internet searches show that this establishment is a small takeaway type restaurant with seating for approximately 10 diners, notwithstanding COVID 19 distancing restrictions. The claim amounts equate to an average of 1383 diners served per day over the course of the qualifying period claimed, with a minimum total spend (as per the scheme guidelines) of £182,058.92. If the restaurant operated for 12 hours per day this would equate to 115 diners served per hour. Analysis of the one known company bank account shows no transactions identifiable with the running of a restaurant type establishment or with the level of turnover the EOTHO claim suggests e.g., rental or lease payments, business rates, staffing expenses, food and consumables purchases or diner receipts. Mr Hussain has failed to evidence or satisfactorily explain this position. Mr Hussain failed to ensure that the Company maintained and/or preserved adequate accounting records, or alternatively, Mr Hussain has failed to deliver up to the Liquidator of the Company, for a period from at least 9th April 2019, the date incorporation, to 1st September 2021, the date of CVL, such records as were maintained, with the consequence that it has not been possible to determine: Whether receipts into the company bank account of £412,116.93. represent the total income of the company. Whether payments out of the company bank accounts, inclusive of £50,000 relating to the BBL, totalling £412,513.87 were legitimate company expenditure.
