Hartlepool United F.C. HMRC Petition Resolved

Business as usual

It appears as though a bill that was due to be paid to HMRC by Hartlepool United F.C went unpaid for around 8 to 10 days. The club are insisting that it is business as usual despite the petition.

This is reportedly the second petition the club have received this year, however, the first petition was dismissed after the court heard that the unpaid bill was due to an ‘accounting software error’.
