Information Rights, The Regulator of Community Interest Companies

Dear Mr Kerry

 

Thank you for your email of 28 September 2018, requesting information
under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

You asked the following questions, which I have answered below:

 

1) Please let me know the reasons for issuing your letter of 14 August
(DEF6 / SC545398) to Highland Community Broadband CIC threatening to
dissolve the company.

 

I can confirm the registrar began strike off action against the company as
she had reasonable cause to believe that the company was not carrying on
business or in operation.

 

I should explain before striking a company off the register, the registrar
would have been required to write two formal letters and send notice to
the company’s registered office to inquire whether it is still carrying on
business or in operation. A notice would be published in the relevant
Gazette stating her intention to strike the company off the register
unless she is shown reason not to do so.

 

A copy of the notice will also be placed on the company’s public record.
If the registrar sees no reason to do otherwise, she will strike off the
company not less than 2 months after the date of the notice. The company
will be dissolved on publication of a further notice stating this in the
relevant Gazette.

 

To access our guidelines regarding the striking off/dissolution, please
follow the link below:

2) Please let me know the reasons for the withdrawal of that threat on 18
August 2018.

 

Our records show that the company delivered its overdue statutory
documents with Companies House which discontinued the compulsory strike
off action.

 

The company’s filing history can be accessed via the following link:

I have not provided you with this information as under section 21 of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) any information that is reasonably
accessible to the applicant, is exempt information under the Act.

 

I hope that the above information answers your freedom of information
enquiry, if you have any queries about this email please contact me.
Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our response,
you should write to me, within two calendar months of the date of this
email and I will ensure that it is forwarded to a senior member of
Companies House who has had no previous involvement in this case and who
will undertake the review.

 

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.

Yours sincerely
