Wings Over Scotland | An unexpected emergency

A reader has despatched us an attention-grabbing follow-up to yesterday’s article.

Let’s simply test what we’re being advised there.

Progress Scotland was integrated in November 2018, though its existence was not introduced till the next February. Its first accounts – for November 2018 to November 2019 – had been printed in Could 2020.

However the subsequent yr’s accounts weren’t printed for an additional 18 months, in November 2021. We’ve no info as to the rationale for the six-month delay, nevertheless it could be moderately hazarded that COVID had an impression.

The following set – protecting as much as the top of November 2021 – had been on account of be filed final August, however the firm filed for the utmost potential extension, taking them as much as final November. Such an extension is simply presupposed to be granted within the case of “an unexpected emergency shortly earlier than the deadline date”.

We don’t know what kind of unexpected emergency befell both Progress Scotland or Angus Robertson in late August 2022 – Firms Home doesn’t document the very fact – and the one important occasion we are able to discover involving him in that month was the absurd conviction of indy activist Dave Llewelyn for a caustic Twitter joke about Robertson and his spouse (and for sarcastically quoting George Galloway’s personal phrases again to him).

We’re unsure why that will intrude with an accountant’s preparation of the agency’s accounts, that are solely six traces lengthy and may take about 20 minutes, however in any occasion the extension purchased them an additional three months.

Then, at just about the final second (simply two days earlier than the brand new deadline), the corporate instantly determined to vary its accounting year-end from November to Could, giving it one other six months to file the 2021 accounts.

Since Progress Scotland, as we famous yesterday, is a zombie firm with no lively administrators and no staff, it’s tough to see why it wants to vary its buying and selling yr, because it’s not really doing any buying and selling any extra. (The final opinion ballot it commissioned was in October 2020, which was throughout the earlier accounting yr.)

However what’s abundantly clear is that for some unfathomable cause it actually doesn’t need folks to see its 2021 accounts, and is pulling each trick within the e-book to kick them as far down the street because it probably can, despite the fact that micro firm accounts reveal virtually nothing in any type of remotely regular circumstances.

We don’t know why it’s doing that. However we do know the date we’ll discover out.

See you in six weeks, of us. It guarantees to be attention-grabbing.
