|27 Mar 2012
||Company accounts accepted
by Companies House.
||This followed an intensive in house
production of accounts, including weekend work, culminating in
successful submission of business accounts
|24 Mar 2012
||The MD in discussion with
the company's accountants was extremely disappointed to note that the
accounts were nowhere near ready, with an estimated week's work to go.
The MD was informed the best he could hope for was accounts submitted
literally at the deadline, leaving no time to allow for rejection as
recommended by Companies House. The MD is well aware that failure
to produce accountants on time is a criminal offence for the Directors
of a company.
||The MD decided that the company needed
to take over producing the accounts from the company's accountants, due
to failure for them to produce accounts in comfortable time to meet the
required deadline. A deep disappointment particularly when the
company had the figures ready in December 2011. This years

required deadlines, due to failure of their appointed chartered

||The MD of Datalite UK Ltd
has been constantly monitoring production of accounts. During the course
of the past week he has been extremely disappointed to note that these
had still not been done. Indeed a two week extension was requested
to companies house, but turned down as problems with
accountant was not deemed a sufficient reason.
||The law appears very unfair in this
area, most companies employ accountants, but the directors remain
absolutely responsible in Companies House eyes, for all errors and
delays instigated by accountants. Albeit complaints can be made to
the Institute of Chartered Accountants.

recruit two more Sales & Despatch staff, namely Aden and Sarah.
