HMRC Winding Up Petition Against Oldham Athletic Dismissed

June 24 2016

Oldham Athletic FC have confirmed a winding-up petition brought against them by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs for an undisclosed amount in unpaid tax has now been dismissed after a brief hearing on Monday.


Winding Up Petition Dismissed After Hearing

It was reported over the weekend that Oldham Athletic FC would be in court on Monday because of a winding up petition issued against the club by HMRC. The amount disputed by HMRC has not been publicised. The Latics have experienced financial difficulties over the past year and have not paid their staff on time on several occasions.

The short hearing on Monday 20 June resulted in the winding-up petition being dismissed and that there will be no more orders made against the club for the time being.

After the news of the hearing emerged a statement from the club reportedly said:

“The winding up petition, scheduled to be heard this morning, was dismissed by the courts and no further orders were made. The club would like to place on record its thanks to CM Solicitors for their assistance with this matter.”
