Klentiana Mahmutaj successfully prosecutes a company director for failing to keep adequate accounting records, pursuant to s 387 of the Companies Act 2006

17. Feb 2017

Today, in a prosecution brought by the Department of Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), a company director was found guilty of failing to keep adequate accounting records, pursuant to s387 of the Companies’ Act 2006.  The case concerned a college providing courses for overseas students who arrived in the UK on student visas. 

The defendant, a company director was found guilty alongside another director who pleaded guilty to the same offence on the first day of trial.  The company went into liquidation in June 2011, less than two years after it was incorporated.

This case involved a number of unusual features.  The case was first reported in the Coventry Telegraph in September 2016 and more recently in a TES article.
