    Sorry if it's been posted already but I would rather this seen twice than not at all!

    I would love to be a forensic account on this one and find out exactly where all the poor victims cash has gone...

    No doubt. Would the fake invoices be classed as "assets" or will they be unenforceable now? (Well at least more unenforceable than they were in the first place!)

    Unlikely if the Compulsory Liquidation goes through.

    Would be interesting to know if this HMRC debt is the tip of the iceberg, anybody out there able to confirm if they have any substantial outstanding CCJ's?

    Unlike normal wind up's by creditors, HMRC is the worst.

    They will wind UKPC up and then seize assets to pay the debt.
    This will also include VAT which UKPC has been shy about.

    Depending how Rupert Willams has disguised funds, they will be looking at tax avoidance and Rupert could end up in prison.
    HMRC do not play games

    As of now, UKPC are not part of an accredited ATA like the BPA and as such can no longer obtain data from the DVLA
    All tickets issued by UKPC are now void
    A statement by the DVLA and BPA is now required

    Any debt collector letter from the likes of DRP REGARDING UKPC should be forwarded to HMRC

    All unpaid UKPC tickets are not assets because they are speculative invoices and are not proven

    Any suspect of a phoenix company being set up should immediately be reported to HMRC and the DVLA

    @Beamerguy you are jumping the gun.

    This is simply a petition, read the notice, unless the debt is settled there will be a hearing on 22 May 2017, at that hearing (barring an adjournment) the company is only then likely to be wound up.

    What happens after that will be up to the Official Receiver and any subsequently appointed Liquidator.

    Not Jumping the gun ....... this is the HMRC ?

    Before the petition, HMRC would have had a full dialogue with UKPC which clearly failed.

    As far as being a member of the BPA, UKPC can no longer be part of an ATA system.

    I am not interested in what happens to UKPC , they made their own bed.

    I know someone who moved to Australia to avoid the HMRC but they flew out and in his situation it was £50k ... they collected

    The petition is just a requirement being posted in the Gazette to seek and find other creditors who are owed money by UKPC

    HMRC will succeed

    As nothing has actually happened yet I'm sure it will be business as usual, so why would the BPA take any action?

    I suspect the useless Muppets have been found out for paying less that their fair share and will go to the edge and then pay up.

    I have a flat in an HA block where the car park is infested by UKPC. I have tried strenuously but unsucessfully to have them ejected, but the HA, despite being a registered charity, do not want to know.

    Let us see who they appoint to replace them, AFAICS parking control by a private company is not necessary on this site.

    The Deep,

    Have you had a word with the Charities Commission? If the contract goes against the charity's aims it's possible that they might have a look as the Trustees could be acting outside of their authority.

    Indeed, if they appoint another scammer I shall animadvert most robustly.

    Better check that the Deep has planning permission and advertising consent, before he place any kind of "aminadvert".
