Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy v Bains

Director of company – Disqualification application. Where the Secretary of State relied upon the new three-year limitation period in relation to a company which had become insolvent after 1 October 2015, when the limitation period in s 108 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986 increased from two years, the Secretary of State was not confined to relying solely upon conduct which had taken place on or after 1 October 2015. The County Court held that s 108 had no bearing at all on the date of conduct.
