Yesterday the Registrar of Companies struck Strike Bowl Queenstown Ltd (Co. No. 1384447) off the New Zealand Register of Companies. The IRD had lodged an objection within the 20-working day time limit following the public notification of his intention to remove it on 18 October 2007. It appears that the IRD has either succeeded in sorting out the matters of tax owed by Mr Carr’s company, or, as we suspect is more likely, has just given up pursuing the debt as the company director cannot be contacted by the National Enforcement Unit of the Companies Office at any known New Zealand address, including his so-called “residential address” 14/31 Greenlane Road, Remuera, Auckland” and the company’s “registered office” – a “virtual office” at “Unit 13, 33-35 Apollo Drive, Mairangi Bay, Auckland”. Strike Bowl Queenstown Ltd was incorporated by John Malcolm Carr on 28 Aug. 2003 and the last Annual Return he filed was dated 31 July 2006. The Society believes that the integrity of the Register and the Companies Office’s enforcement agency – the National Enforcement Unit – is open to question when false, out-of-date and misleading information is allowed to go unchecked.
