An engineering boss has had an order banning him from running a company increased by a court.
David Stuart, 60, of Aberdeen, was found to be running a new company despite being banned in January 2016 for failing to maintain company books and records.
Following the liquidation of Nabscaff Limited, where he was the sole director, he was found to be acting as director of Tern Engineering Services Limited (TES) between January 2016 and September 2016.
TES has been wound up, and HMRC are owed £57,587. The HMRC were also the sole creditor of Nabscaff, for a total of £115,472, to which the previous disqualification order related.
The latest order was made at Aberdeen Sheriff Court by Sheriff Graeme Napier.
It means he cannot be involved directly or indirectly in the promotion, formation or management of a company.
Robert Clarke, head of insolvent investigations north at the Insolvency Service, said: “Mr Stuart has paid scant regard to the previous finding that he was unfit to run a company and not only breached that ban but continued to put his own personal financial interests above those of the company’s creditors.”
