Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy v Zannetou

Company – Director. Where the discrimination against the Revenue and Customs Commissioners (HMRC), through the non-payment of VAT and the underpayment of PAYE, had lasted throughout the entire trading life of a company, currently in liquidation, the Companies Court ruled that the conduct of its former director, the defendant, had fallen below the standards of probity and competence appropriate for persons fit to be directors of companies. Accordingly, the court allowed the claimant Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy' application, under s 6 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986, for a disqualification order against the defendant.
