Interim and final order for Permission to act as a Director following a 7 year Disqualification

Jeremy Barnett, instructed by Ian Coupland and Adam Creasey of Lewis Nedas, secured a very rare success in managing to obtain permission under Section 17 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986, for a person who was disqualified as a Director for 7 years. ( A disqualification for 2 -5 years is for the least serious cases, 5 to 10 years is for serious cases and 10 Р15 for the most serious)

 Full details of the disqualification order can be found on the Secretary of States website and was imposed for failure to keep proper accounting records √جª¬øand was imposed for failure to keep proper accounting records and also to comply with stautory obligations to comply with HMRC in respect of VAT and PAYE returns.

Although an application for permission was lodged immediately the disqualification undertaking was imposed due to the tight time limits, Lewis Nedas encountered real difficulties in obtaining a hearing slot at the Croyden County Court. The case was transferred on more than one occasion and finally appeared before HH Judge Luba QC who granted an application for interim permission pending the full hearing of the case. The final hearing was held at the London County Court sitting at the RCJ on October 4th, when the Counsel for the Secretary of State took a neutral position and District Judge Skelly.
