Winding-up Petition issued by HMRC against Newcastle Falcons
January 22 2018
HMRC have issued a winding-up petition against Newcastle Falcons after being owed £100,000. Newcastle Falcons have reportedly paid the majority of the unpaid tax bill but until last week the £100,000 remained outstanding.
Newcastle Falcons reportedly paid the remaining balance owed to HMRC on 17 January 2018. This was shortly after the Winding- up petition had been published. The Winding – up petition is still due to be heard on 7 February. It is unlikely the petition will take place as there has been no notice.
In April 2016, the Newcastle Chronicle reported that the club had previously faced two winding- up orders. The previous orders had been paid in full.
