A HEREFORDSHIRE company director has been banned after failing to submit accounts to Companies House.

Grant Cuthbert Rogers was sentenced after he was previously proven guilty in his absence by magistrates in Cardiff.

The court heard the 60-year-old, as a director of company Prestige Developments (Global) Ltd, had been convicted of an offence under sections 441 and 451 of the Companies Act 2006 by failing to deliver a copy of every accounting document relating to the accounting period ending June 30, 2018, which were required to be sent to the registrar of companies.

He was further convicted of remaining in continued contravention of the requirements on June 11, 2021, after still failing to deliver the documents to the registrar of companies.

Between June 12 last year and January 3 this year, the court found, Rogers was still in contravention of the requirements, having still failed to deliver the documents required between November 8, 2019, and January 3, 2022.


Magistrates found Rogers had also failed to deliver a copy of the company's accounts relating to the financial year ending June 30, 2020, to the registrar of companies at Companies House in Cardiff on June 30, 2021.

Rogers, of Bannutree Lane, Bridstow, Ross-on-Wye, was disqualified from being a company director, company liquidator or administrator, or receiver or manager of a company's property in any way indirectly or directly, or taking part in the promotion, formation, or management of a company for one year.

He was also fined £440 and must pay costs of £110 and a £66 victim surcharge.
