“Both our client and their solicitor were delighted with the outcome, remarking on the quality of our initial report and the detail contained within it.”
An insolvency practitioner was conducting enquiries into an insolvent company, a case in which the directors had accrued large director loan accounts and debts with HM Revenue and Customs.
UKIS was asked to investigate and establish the value of assets for each director. With a combination of desktop expertise, fact finding and field work, we quickly got to grips with the situation.
Although UK Land Registry records are held in such a way that it is not possible to search property ownership using an individual’s name, we utilised several other investigative techniques to identify an additional £500,000 of property assets of which the Inland Revenue was unaware.
As a result, the client and their solicitor were in a position to take further action to recover debts on the back of our findings. UKIS was subsequently recommissioned to ensure important documentation was brought to the attention of the directors in question.
