Companies House has admitted losing Body Shop’s accounts in a mistake that
could have cost the beauty products retailer £500 in late-filing fines.
Companies House has admitted the error, the Daily Telegraph reports
today: ‘[we] mislaid them. We have acknowledged that it was our fault. The
company filed legitimately and did not file late,’ a spokesman said in the
Companies House also admitted that it lost 112 of the 1.43 million accounts
filed by companies in the 12 months to March 31, 2005.
A further 100 cases were not clear-cut losses but Companies House had given
companies the benefit of the doubt.
