Care Provider Banned From Running Companies. Boss of a care provider based in Southend-on-Sea has been disqualified from running any company for five years after abuse of the tax regime

Caring Carers Limited was incorporated in January 2011 and traded from premises in Weston Road, Southend-on-Sea.

The Company’s business was to provide care services to the elderly and infirm in the Southend Community and contracts for care were obtained through GPs, local hospitals and the local authority.

46 year old Nomalisho Kawadza Moyo from Southend-on-Sea was appointed Director of Caring Carers shortly after incorporation. However, in February 2020 the care provider entered into a Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation.

The Company’s insolvency triggered an investigation by the Insolvency Service before investigators discovered that from at least April 2017, Nomalisho Moyo failed to ensure that Caring Carers registered for PAYE tax with the tax authorities. This resulted in a settlement worth more than £118,000.

Further enquires uncovered Nomalisho Moyo had failed to submit company tax returns and the Company made no payments to the tax authorities from 2017 onwards despite making payments to a connected company of more than £30,000.

When Caring Carers went into liquidation, the tax authority was owed more than £296,000 including unpaid tax, penalties, the settlement due and interest.

On 23 February 2022, The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy accepted an undertaking from Nomalisho Moyo for 5 years.

Effective from 16 March 2022, Nomalisho Moyo is disqualified from acting as a Director of any company and from directly or indirectly becoming involved in the promotion, formation or management of a company, without the permission of the Court.

Insolvency Service Comment

Lawrence Zussman, Deputy Head of Insolvent Investigations, said:

Whilst Nomalisho Moyo ensured her company provided care to residents in the local community, she totally neglected her company’s tax responsibilities. This is appalling behaviour and through her actions has deprived the public purse and caused suffering to the taxpayer.

This should serve as a stark warning to directors that they must pay their taxes and where abuse of the tax regime is uncovered, we will pursue sanctions against rogue directors.
