HMRC Winding-up Petition Dismissed

The winding-up petition over an unpaid tax bill was reportedly dismissed on Wednesday in the Companies Court, London.

Bury FC originally faced a winding-up petition brought by their former coach Chris Brass over unpaid wages. HMRC soon took over the Petition after the club stopped paying PAYE, National Insurance and VAT earlier in the year.

The petition with HMRC has now been dismissed after a company voluntary arrangement was agreed which allows Bury FC to settle debts by paying back some of what they owe to insolvent companies and creditors whilst coming to an agreement.
