Edinburgh Capitals face fears over HMRC Winding-up Petition

December 08 2017

It has been reported that Edinburgh Capitals ice hockey club are facing fears over the future of the club after a winding-up petition was issued by HMRC for the business to be wound up.


Winding-Up Petition

A hearing recently took place at the Royal Courts of Justice to wind up Capitals Hockey Limited.

Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) originally issued a winding up petition in September.

Scott Neil, director and owner of the Edinburgh Capitals, recently stated that everything was “done through the proper channels”.

Scott Neil has added that details of the club’s future would not be revealed until the following week.

A club statement was issued that read “We are aware that reports relating to the Capitals legal structure.

“The club is preparing a full statement on changes being made and why and will release full details next week.

“We ask for your patience.We know fans need detail and it will be provided.”

The hearing comes after fellow director of Capitals Hockey Limited, Matthew Tailford, resigned.

The Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) understands that the Capitals are undergoing a restructuring process within the business.

According to reports staff have been told to continue as usual as the Capitals back in action to play.

The Capitals currently sit bottom of the Elite Ice Hockey League with just two points from their opening 14 league matches.

The statement added “With no home game last weekend we’re looking forward to getting back in front of our fans at Murrayfield this Sunday. Please come and support your Edinburgh Capitals.”
