Companies House dissolves Tweetdeck for failing to file accounts

TWEETDECK HAS BEEN shut down by Companies House for failing to file its accounts.

Despite several warnings and sanctions to file its accounts to Companies House, the business failed to do so and was dissolved on 7 May 2013.

The online tool for Twitter users was acquired by Twitter in 2011 for an estimated £25m. Twitter itself was sanctioned and issued various warnings by Companies House for failure to file its accounts. According to filings on Companies House the last set of accounts were made up to 31 December 2011 but were filed on 28 December 2012.

A source at Companies House said that although they have dissolved Tweetdeck it expects that Twitter will strip the assets from Tweetdeck and assimilate them into its own organisation. In this case there would be no change to the end user.

“Companies House goes through a strict compliance process to try and ensure companies file documentation in a timely manner,” a spokesman for Companies House said.

“Unfortunately, in a small number of cases, matters proceeded to strike off, as in this case. It is incumbent on all directors to ensure documentation is submitted appropriately and it is always disappointing when this is not the case.”
