According to the BBC website, Vital UK Ltd, the company which led to Mr Whyte getting a 7 year disqualification, transferred assets to keep them out of the hands of creditors. These assets went to Pelcroft Ltd.
As per Companies House, the details are as follows:-
Name & Registered Office:
11 TABER GROVE
Company No. 02994144
Date of Incorporation: 24/11/1994
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Case Number: 1 (of 1 cases)
Case Type: Compulsory Liquidation
Order to Wind Up: 05/02/1997
Petition Date: 14/11/1996
Mr Brendan Earley, a name familiar to readers of my blog, was Company Secretary at one time. There is a familiar name as a director too – Craig WHITE born January 1969!!!
He was a director there from 30th November 1994 to 1st November 1995, conveniently just around the time Vital UK Ltd bit the dust.
From my own look at Companies House, we have had Craig Thomas Whyte, born January 1969, Craig Thomas Whyte, born January 1971, Craig Thomas White, born January 1971 and now Craig White, born January 1969.
Mr Whyte, in the Tixway case, told the court that he could not recall the reason for his disqualification without paperwork in front of him.
Perhaps he should have his birth certificate in front of him whenever filling out Companies House documentation, as there seem to be numerous mix ups.
