HMRC Winding-up Petition against Hereford United FC Dismissed by Companies Court

Football Club, Hereford United FC have the a compulsory winding-up order of the Companies Court on a Winding-up Petition issued by Her Majesty Revenue and Customs at the High Court, London.


It was reported that yesterday morning, Hereford United FC faced another winding up petition, this time from from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Registrar Sally Barber formally dismissed HMRC’s petition on request from its legal representative, Matt Smith, who said it had not yet been advertised in the London Gazette.

Even though no details were given, this decision could mean that the tax debt that gave rise to the petition has now been paid.  However, the club still has to come back to court at the end of the month in a dispute with ex-manager Martin Foyle.

Previous Winding up Petitions

Earlier this month it was reported that another insolvency judge, Registrar Stephen Baister, adjourned the winding up petition brought Mr Foyle, who left the club in March and is now manager of conference side rivals Southport, until June 30.

At that hearing on 2 June, the clubs legal representatives said that they had been purchased the previous week and the new owners were investigating options including administration and a creditors voluntary arrangement (CVA). Registrar Baister said he would give the club until June 30 to “look into all those possibilities”.

A previous winding up petition brought by HMRC, which was reported on in April, was dismissed by Registrar Jones after the club paid outstanding tax debts of around £40,000.
