Conference football club avoids administration 14 May 2013

Newly promoted Conference side Salisbury City Football Club has settled its debts with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and a winding up order filed on 8 May is to be dismissed.

The Wiltshire club – which was promoted to the fifth tier of English football at the end of this season – was contacted on 2 May by HMRC for a total debt of £27,529, consisting of two months of PAYE and VAT from one quarter.

In a statement made on 10 May, the club stated that it had paid the VAT and one month’s PAYE totalling £27,539.

One the same day the club announced that the remaining debt had been settled and that the winding up petition will be dismissed on 10 June.

Salisbury City FC chairman William Harrison-Allan said: “The Board would like to clarify that all of the CVA payments were made on time and in line with requirements and that these finished in December 2012.

“The Board would also like to confirm that all staff wages including payers have all been made and are up to date.”

Salisbury City FC ended the 2012-13 season with promotion to the Conference National division following victory in the Conference South division playoffs.

The club had previously gone into administration in September 2009 and was demoted in May 2010 for breaching Conference rules. A consortium takeover took the club out of administration in summer 2010.

Two Hampshire clubs have already entered administration this month – Farnborough FC on 1 May and Aldershot Town FC a day later.
