    Does anyone know if Kingdom Interiors of Gloucestershire, GL18 4NG, have gone bust?
    I placed an order in February 2017 and I have not received anything, no reply to emails, telephone or signed for letters. What's the next step?

    Nothing on their website to say they've gone bust and looking at their filing history with Companies House, the filings are up to date (last filing was the accounts in March 2017).

    Anne Fulford, the sole director, is on LInkedIn, so perhaps try that too?

    Have you paid any money and if so, how?

    According to 'the owner' they're experiencing 'unforeseen difficulties' (look at Google reviews for Kingdom interiors). Whatever that means

    I too have an unfulfilled order from early March and have just been refunded via PayPal.

    Next step is to get your money back. Either chargeback or section 75 if you paid by Credit / Debit card. Go to their Resolution Centre (but take it straight to a 'claim') if you used PayPal.

    Bit of a problem if you availed yourself of the offer of 'extra discount for Bank Transfer' which oddly surfaced just before they stopped fulfilling orders? Apparently Trading Standards are suggesting County Court ............ which seems to me to be throwing good money after bad. You'll get Judgement without problem but how do you enforce it with all Ltd assets in a deserted showroom? In my experience County Court bailiffs won't break in (despite they are allowed to do so with commercial premises) - and most of the assets in there will doubtless be owned by unpaid suppliers. So - if you did use the Bank Transfer route - I suggest Action Fraud. If enough complain the local fraud office may take an interest.
    If you want to test the depth of the water .........don't use both feet !

    I would second contacting Action Fraud, and put a review on Google stating that you've contacted Action Fraud and so should others. There are reviews from suppliers who haven't been paid, and they promoted bank transfer as a payment option shortly before they began having financial difficulties. It certainly looks deliberate.

    They have in fact gone bust and a notice has been published as follows;
    Meetings of Creditors

    KINGDOM INTERIORS LIMITED

    (Company Number 06337029)
    Registered office: The Long Barn Corse Lawn, Mite Farm Business Park, Gloucester, GL19 4NG
    Principal trading address: The Long Barn Corse Lawn, Mite Farm Business Park, Gloucester, GL19 4NG

    Notice is given that a virtual meeting of the creditors of the above named Company will be held by video conference on 26 May 2017 at 10.15 am for the purpose provided for in Section 100 of the Insolvency Act 1986.

    Creditors entitled to attend and vote at the virtual meeting may do so personally or by proxy. A creditor can access the virtual meeting and vote during the meeting by following the instructions provided with the notice that has been delivered to all known creditors. Any creditor who has not received this notice should contact Durkan Cahill on the details provided below.

    Any creditor is entitled to vote if they have delivered proof of their debt by no later than 4.00 pm on the business day before the meeting. If a creditor cannot attend the virtual meeting, or does not wish to attend but still wishes to vote at the meeting, they can either nominate a person to attend as a proxy on their behalf, or they may nominate the Chair of the meeting, who will be a Director of the Company, to vote on their behalf. Creditors must deliver their proxy form by no later than the commencement of the meeting. Creditors must deliver all proofs of their debt and proxies to Durkan Cahill at 17 Berkeley Mews, 29 High Street, Cheltenham, GL50 1DY.

    Unless they surrender their security, secured creditors must give particulars of their security, the date when it was given and the estimated value at which it is assessed if they wish to vote at the meeting. At the meeting, creditors may receive information about, or be called upon to approve, the costs of preparing the Statement of Affairs and convening the meeting of creditors.

    Michael Durkan (IP No. 9583) of Durkan Cahill is qualified to act as the Insolvency Practitioner in relation to the Company and will, during the period before the day of the meeting, furnish creditors free of charge with such information concerning the Company's affairs as they may reasonably require.

    If Michael Durkan is the Insolvency Practitioner, who is Michael Noakes?
