Late on Wednesday evening 16 December, company director John Malcolm Carr (see photo – http://www.carr.co.nz/images/jmc.jpg) changed the registered name of the listed shareholder of four New Zealand registered companies he directs, from “Cuchara Inc” to “Carr Consulting P.A.” By doing so he confirmed the Society’s contention (see Dec. Newsletter) that he had been using an incorrect US-based corporation shareholder name for about nine years in his annual returns. The Society is correct to have asserted that all the shares are in fact held by a professional association (P.A.) authorised to render financial planning advice and related services in Florida through Better Business Services Inc, which Carr directs from his office in the US.
The corporation “Carr Consulting P.A.” is now recorded by Mr Carr in his latest entry (16/12/09) on the NZ Companies website as located at 14/31 Greenlane East, Remuera Auckland. On 19 October 2009 he recorded the shareholder as having moved from Unit 13, 33-35 Apollo Drive, Mairangi Bay, Auckland to 22588 Scenic Loop Rd, San Antonio, Texas. The National Enforcement Unit investigating this matter (see Dec. Newsletter) must be alarmed at the peripatetic, puzzling, and pliable nature of this professional association (shareholder).
Questions remain: What is the true nature of “Carr Consulting P.A.” which according to its articles of incorporation, approved by its shareholder(s) in 1999, is restricted to operate only in the State of Florida,? What is its status with the IRD and IRS? What business services is it authorised to carry out in Godzone?
In Summary: Mr John M Carr has now confirmed that four New Zealand registered companies he directs: Velocity Partners Ltd, PJ Digital Ltd, Shelf Company No. 10, and First Virtual Deposit & Nominee Company Ltd (as well as Cromwell 24 Hr Challenge Ltd that was struck off the Register of Companies in September 2005), are 100% owned by Carr Consulting P.A. PJ Digital Ltd and Shelf Company No. 10 Ltd own NZ properties.
