On Monday 28 July 2014, the Companies Court heard the petition of Hereford United FC which was adjourned again.
It was reported that Registrar Jones adjourned the case until 1 September, after he was told that the club is exploring proposals for a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) . He said he would adjourn the case in order ‘to see what happens’ at a meeting scheduled to take place on 15 August. Legal representatives appeared for two creditors, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs and Martin Foyle – who had brought the winding-up petition.
Previous Winding Up Petitions
It was reported that on 16 June 2014, Hereford United FC faced a 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.
