Another Winding Up Petition
HMRC have brought another winding up petition against Notts County FC due to outstanding tax bills. Notts County FC have previously received winding-up petitions brought by HMRC in 2010, 2013 and earlier this year. The club managed to get each petition dismissed by paying outstanding tax debts to HMRC.
In a statement to reporters, Jason Turner (chief executive) reportedly (via Nottingham Post) said:
“I know this will be a frustration to you all, but I am unable to provide you with detailed information on the current financial situation at the club. However, I am assured that our current debt to HMRC will be settled ahead of the scheduled court date.”
Notts County FC is up for sale but a buyer is yet to be found.
