RBT Dryliners and Plasters UK Limited was incorporated in 2015 and supplied subcontract labour to the construction industry.
Roman Bogdan Piotrowski,45, from Manchester, was the sole director from April 2016 but only a year later caused the company to enter into Creditors Voluntary Liquidation.
This triggered an investigation by the Insolvency Service due to irregularities in the firm’s tax returns.
The investigation established that for the period from May 2016 to January 2017, Piotrowski declared just over £423,000 to the tax authorities regarding the company’s Construction Industry Scheme liabilities.
But investigators discovered that RBT Dryliners and Plasters UK failed to declare further Construction Industry Scheme liabilities worth close to £220,000.
The investigation also established that Piotrowski didn’t pay correct levels of VAT having filed inaccurate returns after failing to account for sales receipts of more than £3.9m.
The Secretary of State has accepted a disqualification undertaking from Piotrowski banning him for seven years from acting as a director.
Jane Knight, Deputy Head of Insolvent Investigations for the Insolvency Service, said: “Roman Piotrowski failed to declare RBT Dryliners and Plasters UK’s true tax liabilities, depriving the Exchequer of money rightfully owed.
“His disqualification will help prevent further loses to the public purse and also serves as a warning to other directors of their responsibilities and that disqualification will be the likely outcome should they fail to carry them out.”
