    Amusing insolvency filings of our time

    In the companies court tomorrow:

    CR-2017-009438 DUMP YOUR BUST BUSINESS DOT COM LIMITED

    #2
    I spend a not unreasonable amount of work time browsing the Companies House "Beta" site, and my absolute favourite was a company director who'd listed his occupation as "Vape Druid."

    (Not quite on topic, but it's not often that I get to talk about this sort of thing.)

    That site has been "Beta" for a very long time now.

      By the way, if you actually register on that site, do the search/filtering options get better?

        I've never tried, because I get all the information that I need from the normal public search. There's gold in them thar hills, you know.

        (I doubt whether it would, if for no other reason that it's all public information - tempted to when I get in tomorrow morning, though.)

          Yeah, that's the same boat I'm in. Occasionally I wish I could do a more sophisticated filter, but it's not important enough to actually register. Most of the time I'm just searching for a specific company.

            Personal favourite instance of this was the time Astute Loss Prevention Ltd went into liquidation.

                I suspect there will be a bit of a media scrum on Fetter Lane tomorrow

                    Also someone called Uhuru, but I'm going to assume that's not Nichelle Nichols.

                      Was that around here (I was in the Seven Stars behind the Royal Courts earlier)? Didn't see any celeb kerfuffle.

                        No, tomorrow. And it's Fetter Lane, not the RCJ proper.

                          Though, speaking of the Seven Stars and celebs, I did once see Clare Danes there.

                                Well that's annoying. Companies House seems to have changed its search function, with the result that one of the searches I regularly do no longer returns any resultss.

                                    That Boris Becker bankruptcy hearing turned out interesting.

                                      Some of wife's relatives are Clutterbucks. I'm sure it's a name for a Hobbit family in Lord of the Rings as well.

                                          And now downright weird:

                                          The Central African Republic has denied that Boris Becker is one of its official diplomats and said a passport the former tennis star claimed should give him diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings in the UK is invalid.

                                          “The diplomatic passport that he has is a fake,” the foreign ministry’s chief of staff, Cherubin Moroubama, told Agence-France Presse. He said the document’s serial number corresponded to one of a batch of passports stolen in 2014.

                                            Not technically an insolvency filing, but a filing by a company that is surely about to be insolvent. Courtesy of Matt Levine:
                                            Item 1. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

                                            All financial records from Access-Power, Inc. have been destroyed by
                                            previous management and are not available. It is very expensive to
                                            obtain audited reports of $0.

                                            **********

                                            THERE ARE NO FINANCIAL RECORDS, NO DEBT, NO CONVERTIBLE

                                            OLD DEBT, EMPLOYEES, or even the
                                            ACCR COFFEE POT WAS STOLEN!

                                            Item 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

                                            The Corporation is for sale. I will sell Access-Power, Inc
                                            for $15,000,000.00 or $.06 per share.

                                            in the market place at the moment today.

                                            We are filing this document to bring all of
                                            our filings current as required by federal law.

                                            Access-Power's #1 priority is to solicit a Market Maker to believe
                                            in ACCR, and
                                            to give us a fighting chance to live as a business.

                                              That’s just awesome.

                                              I’ve already suggested that my colleagues use it their training materials.
