Conduct: Mr Paul John Bennett (“Mr Bennett”) failed to ensure that PLRR Construction Ltd (“PLRR”) maintained and/or preserved adequate accounting records or alternatively he failed to deliver up such records as were maintained and preserved to the Liquidator for the period 01 February 2016 to liquidation on 01 August 2017. As a result, it has not been possible to: • Establish the full details of PLRR’s trading between 01 February 2016 and liquidation; • Establish the true position with regards to PLRR’s assets, liabilities, income and expenditure; • Determine whether cash amounting to £31,703.31 withdrawn between 1 February 2016 and liquidation was for the benefit of PLRR; • Accurately determine the liability due to HMRC in respect of VAT or whether HMRC assessments represent the VAT due on the total trade carried out by PLRR. Mr Bennett failed to ensure that PLRR complied with its statutory obligations to file Value Added Tax (“VAT”) returns and remit monies as and when due to HMRC and caused PLRR to trade to the detriment of HMRC from 07 March 2015, resulting in a liability of at least £142,317.08 plus surcharges, interest and penalties of £17,253.86 due to HMRC at liquidation in that: • PLRR submitted a VAT return for the 01/15 quarterly VAT period to HMRC on 06 March 2015. No further returns were submitted and HMRC made assessments for each following quarter up to the 07/17 VAT period; • Bank statements for PLRR for the period 07 March 2015 to liquidation show total payments of £281,024.93 from the account including payments amounting to £78,650.00 to Mr Bennett and £85,930.01 withdrawn at cash machines. In the same period payments amounting to £18,000.00 were made to HMRC; • At liquidation, HMRC are owed at least £199,199.62 of which £142,317.08 relates to assessed VAT; • Other creditors at liquidation comprise £8,455.00 owed to the director and £360.00 owed to trade creditors.
