HM REVENUE & CUSTOMS has petitioned to wind up Truro City FC, owned by Kevin Heaney who is leading a consortium to buy collapsed club Plymouth Argyle.
A statement from Truro said: “Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs have taken an unduly aggressive approach to a tax liability by issuing a winding-up petition.
“TCFC has previously been in dispute with HMRC over wrongly assessed VAT and this was settled in TCFC’s favour.”
Plymouth Argyle’s administrator Brendan Guilfoyle has not commented on the issue ahead of an announcement about the collapsed club due next week.
