A London-based fashion and sports public relations agency which boasts clients such as Adidas Eyewear, Barbour, Catherine Deane and Burlington has been liquidated.
Creditors of Dust PR Limited – a Soho-based PR agency – include HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), high net worth bank Coutts and Harness Publicity Limited.
Other creditors on the list include M2 Covent Garden, Reuter Brooks and Regal Stationers. Documents filed at Companies House show that creditor sums owed totalled £85,126.
HMRC, however, was by far the largest creditor. PAYE tax and National Insurance (NI) contributions of £26,113 are overdue while corporate tax payments of £23,085 are also owed.
Insolvency practitioner Alan Clark of Ilford-based firm Carter Clark has been appointed to handle the liquidation.
When Insolvency News contacted Dust PR via the telephone number listed on the company website – which is still listing the company as ‘Dust PR Limited’, a spokesperson said “There is nobody here who can comment at the moment”.
Before the liquidation that was passed on 7 February 2013, Dust had been a successful agency, with client campaigns in a range of sectors.
The company had offered events, editorial, consultancy work, digital and creative services since 2002. The company declared assets in a directors’ loan account of £39,829.
Insolvency News has request further detail from the insolvency practitioner and will update this story should it receive such information.
