Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills v Akbar and others

Company – Director. The conduct of each of the defendant directors concerning a company currently in liquidation, namely causing or allowing certain transactions to take place regarding an employee benefit trust scheme, had been such as to make them unfit to be concerned in the management of a company, within the meaning of s 6 of the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986. The Chancery Division so ruled in a claim brought by the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills. The directors were disqualified, respectively, for periods ranging from two years to six years.
