THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE of Montpelier Professional has told Accountancy Age the winding-up petition issued against the holding company of the group of accountancy firms has been withdrawn.
The petition, served to the firm on 6 April according to a listing in the London Gazette, came, after a “dispute with HMRC”,CEO Watkin Gittins said,
Montpelier Professional missed the 30 September 2014 deadline to file its accounts to 31 December 2013 and has made no filing since 31 December 2012. A 2012 winding-up petition against it was later dismissed.
Gittins told Accountancy Age the holding company’s filings can be made “now the 2014 audits of the subsidiaries have been filed”.
Montpelier operates offices in Carlisle, Castle Douglas, Dumfries, Leeds, Newton Stewart, Preston, Stranraer and Fylde. Its principle trading address is shown on the petition as Montpelier House in Manchester.
