Conduct: John Murray (“Mr Murray”) failed to ensure that Professional Business Services Ltd maintained and/or preserved adequate accounting records for the period 01 February 2017 to Liquidation on 5 February 2018 , or in the alternative, following liquidation he failed to deliver up to the Liquidator such records as were maintained and/or preserved. The lack of accounting records has resulted in the Liquidator being unable to determine the following:

  • The purpose of payments totalling £188,632 made from the company bank account referencing a connected company between 1 February 2017 to 30 August 2017 to trade suppliers and whether these relate to genuine company expenditure.
  • The reason for deposits totalling £206,587 received into the company bank account between 1 February 2017 to 30 August 2017 through an online payment provider which he advised were payments from a connected party but has provided no evidence of this.
  • When the company ceased to trade. He cancelled its VAT registration with effect from 1 January 2017 advising HMRC the company had ceased to trade. However he advised the IP the company ceased to trade in August 2017 and bank transactions continue up to August 2017. Therefore the true VAT liability cannot be determined.
  • The full extent of the liabilities owed by the company and whether any book debts are due to Professional Business Services Ltd.
