Not only had their company Weldtek QA Limited failed to pay taxes to HMRC, Mr Williams had also acted as a director while disqualified from a previous ruling. Mrs Williams was appointed sole director after his ban, however she still allowed her husband to be involved with managing the company.
They also failed to pay VAT, PAYE, Corporation Tax and NIC (totalling £68,514) between 2013 and 2014.
Mr Williams is banned for 10 years while Mrs Williams is banned for 4 years.
The Insolvency Service’s Investigation Leader, Robert Clarke, said in a statement:
“Directors who ignore disqualification orders made against them, and those who provide cover for them to continue to run limited companies, will be vigorously pursued by The Insolvency Service. The lengths of the Disqualification Orders in this case send a clear message as to the serious view taken by the Court of such corporate impropriety.”
