UKPC winding up petition

UKPC is the subject of a winding up petition from HMRC.

Given the large dividends trousered by the owner Rupert Williams recently, it would appear he could save the company if desired. However, it may be the intention to phoenix the company to get rid of the debt to HMRC. Only time will tell.

Here is a possible candidate - UK Parking Controls Limited

Happy Parking

  1. Note it is a Petition to Wind Up, not an Order.

    Debt could be paid and they carry on as before.

  3. There may be another "debt" they are trying to dump. Check the shareholding.

  4. I can't see ParkingEye getting the MetroCentre when UKPC go. It's men on the ground territory. ANPR wouldn't work here so it'll be foot soldiers who take it on, if anyone does at all. Maybe VCS or Excel.

  5. If HMRC obtain a winding up order then old UKPC would not be able to trade. If new UKPCs buys up the business as a going concern then it would be able to restart the business and continue as before (after a pause in the service). However, it is possible that new UKPCs could try to trade as old UKPC without authority. In this case, all PCNs, signage, contracts, etc. would be invalid. Anyone who has an unpaid PCN from old UKPC should consider waiting for the situation to become clearer.

  6. It has been classed as a dormant company since 2009 and every year since incorporation. Have they ever taken anyone to court successfully?
