Dear Companies House,

the controversial Scottish company NetIDMe (SC269495) have been subject to a compulsory liquidation since 11 September 2014.

I understand that following a compulsory liquidation... "A copy of the statement of affairs and any statement of concurrence must be delivered to the registrar as well as details of the formation of, and any changes to, a creditors committee. The liquidator or Official Receiver must deliver progress reports from the date of appointment and for each 12 month period until the winding up ceases" (see *).

When I look at the records for NetIDMe on your web site, I cannot see a statement of affairs, nor any details of a creditors committee, nor progress reports for each of the 12 month periods 2014/15 & 2015/16.

Please could you

1) Confirm or deny you have received a report from the insolvency practitioner handling the liquidation
2) Disclose a copy of any conduct report
3) Disclose a copy of any statement of affairs
3) Disclose a copy of any annual progress report
5) Disclose the dates of creditors & contributors meetings
6) Confirm or deny that one or more of the directors of the company have been disqualified
7) Confirm or deny that one or more of the directors have been prosecuted

In the event that these documents have not been filed, please could you disclose what steps you are taking to ensure they will be delivered.

Yours faithfully,

P. John

Dear Mr John

 

I refer to your email dated 11 July 2017 in which you request the
following information for the company NETIDME Ltd (SC269495);

 

1) Confirm or deny you have received a report from the insolvency
practitioner handling the liquidation

2) Disclose a copy of any conduct report

3) Disclose a copy of any statement of affairs

3) Disclose a copy of any annual progress report

5) Disclose the dates of creditors & contributors meetings

6) Confirm or deny that one or more of the directors of the company have
been disqualified

7) Confirm or deny that one or more of the directors have been prosecuted

 

In the event that these documents have not been filed, please could you
disclose what steps you are taking to ensure they will be delivered.

 

The documents as per your requests 1-5 if filed would be on the public
record.  You can view the filing history for Netidme Ltd on the Companies
House Beta site via our website
[1]https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/compa...

I have not provided you with this information as under section 21 of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 any information that is reasonably
accessible to the applicant, albeit on payment of a fee, is exempt
information under the Act.

 

With regard to request to confirm or deny that one or more directors have
been prosecuted, it is my view that to confirm or deny whether this
requested information is held would breach the data protection principles.
As a result, I consider that section 40(5)(b)(i) FOIA is engaged in this
case, and I am therefore unable to confirm or deny whether this
information is held.

 

You have asked what steps are being taken to ensure that the required
documents for liquidation are received.  There is no current pursuit
process for this activity, however Companies House will act/chase for
documentation as a result of a customer complaint. 

 

If you are dissatisfied with the result of your request for information
you may request an internal review within two calendar months of the date
of this email. The case will be reviewed by a senior member of staff who
has had no previous involvement in this case.  Please remember to quote
the reference number above in any future communications.

 

If you are then not content with the outcome of the internal review, you
have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  Further information can be found at [3]www.ico.org.uk

 

Yours sincerely
