I wonder how many deposits he has still got for bikes not to be delivered.

Not particularly unusual for companies in the public eye and competitive industries to file accounts as late as possible and beyond due dates.

But no I haven't got a deposit on one. :sad:

I've got a few of them. You get one if you fail to do the yearly return (nowt to do with tax). I got mine when shutting the company down when my accountant told me not to bother. I think I had about three or four before I did the return because I'm waiting for some money before I can finally dissolve the company.

It might just be very slack company administration. If they file the accounts and annual return at Companies House and pay a re-registration fee, then they could get restored. They weren't necessarily financially insolvent but you'd have to wonder if they are late with putting the information in the public domain because they are in a bad way (or were at the end of March 2018) or because they are disorganized.

i'm not sure what the deal is with carrying on with using the 'Limited' part of the name in any business dealings while they are struck off. I wonder if it would be fraud or if it would make the directors personally liable for any debts after 5/03/2019?

Have they transferred activities to another limited liability company? Might be why they got slack with the returns for that one.

I wouldn't normally wish a business to go under, but ideally, if Norton went, Bloor could buy up the assets and patents and a proper manufacturer build them. I don't know if he would, though. Might not be in their interests.

Or maybe somebody else who isn't a c!$%.

I would trust that c!$% Gardiner about as far as I could throw Diane Abbott.

Basically he's crowdfunding motorcycle production.

Mate of mine worked for him for a couple of years in a responsible position. I shall make no further comment except that they fell out.

So has Norton collapsed and in administration or is it still taking orders in 2019 and using the money to prop up the 2018 finances?.
