John Edward Clancy, sole director of three building companies recently put into liquidation, has readily accessed the Companies Office website as “Presenter” and ‘authorised’ the record of a transfer of all the 80 shares listed as owned by “FJ40 Trust” in OJJ Christchurch Central Ltd – into the ownership of Riani Suhandi. These shares – 20% of the company – were “owned” by a “Trust” with no trustees names ever having been recorded against the shareholding record – a clear breach of the Companies Act 1993 by Clancy.

John Edward Clancy is recorded on Companies Office Register as the sole director of Global Developments (Waltham) Ltd which was put into liquidation on 22 July 2015 by Order of the High Court under s 241(2)(c) of the Companies Act 1993. The petitioning creditor was the Inland Revenue Department. David Murray Blanchett of PriceWaterhouseCoopers Auckland was appointed by the Court as Liquidator. (This is the third company directed by Clancy that has been put into liquidation in recent months).
John Edward Clancy’s “signature” is recorded on the Director’s Consent Certificate he “signed” sometime on or before the 21 January 2014, which was faxed at 10.21 that day to the Companies Office from Tim Fleming Associated Ltd, registered office Level 5, 64 Khyber Pass Road, Grafton, Auckland, New Zealand. The Certificate was completed by the accountant acting for all the companies John Clancy directs, Richard Townsend Somerville, of Walker Somerville Ld, which has its registered office at Level 5, 64 Khyber Pass Rd, Newmarket, Auckland, 1023 , New Zealand. (Somerville and Fleming work in the same office).
The “John Clancy” signature on the Director’s Certificate would appear NOT to be his. It does not match in any way the signatures on numerous other Director’s certificates he has signed.
Compare for example his signature with his signatures involving the incorporation of Global Homes Ltd (now called LF Holdings Ltd) on 8 July 2009.
[Note: As of 29 November 2011 John Clancy’s individually held ownership in “Global Homes Ltd” was reduced from 100% to 5%. The remaining 95% of the shares were transferred to a Trust of which John Edward Clancy and his wife Youngmee Clancy are the only trustees. As trustees they jointly own the shares with a trustee service company – Clancy Trustee Company Ltd, owned and directed by Somerville].
The Consent Certificate for the shareholder of Global Developments (Waltham) Ltd – FJ40 Trustees Ltd – was signed by Richard Somerville and faxed to the Companies Office at 15:21 on 20 January 2014 from the Office of Tim Fleming Associates Ltd. All the company’s 1000 shares are jointly held by FJ40 Trustees Ltd (owned and directed by Somerville), and the Trust’s single trustee John Edward Clancy.

John Edward Clancy breached section 159(1)(a) and 159(2)(d) of the Companies Act 1993 when he failed to deliver to the Registrar “within 20 working days of the change occurring“, the required Notice of Change of directors in the case of his appointments of Riani Suhandi as a director to two companies he (Clancy) directed: Renovation Masters Auckland Ltd and Future Proof Building Ltd. Furthermore, the same Consent Certificate signed on 11/06/15 by Suhani relating to Future Proof Building (Co. No. 3972918) has been uploaded by Clancy onto the Companies website and filed with documents relating to Renovation Masters Auckland (Co. No. 1868260).

John Edward Clancy resigned as director of Future Proof Building Ltd (formerly Global Cleaning Services) on 15 June 2015 when his company accountant Richard Somerville, as “Presenter”, uploaded a “Particulars of Director” form onto the Companies Office website at at 10:14:16 on that day, which states :
Ceased Director: John Edward CLANCY
Earlier that day John Edward Clancy of 87 Byron Street, Sydenham, Christchurch 8023, uploaded a “Consent and certificate of director” form onto the Companies Office website at 9.46:07 am on 12 June 2015 which states that “Riani Suhandi“, whose residential address he gave as “Flat 8, 126 Nursery Rd, Linwood, Christchurch 8011, NZ“, was appointed by him as fellow director of Future Proof Building – effective 1 May 2015.
Two seconds later at 9.46:09 he filed a “Particulars of Director” form providing the same residential address for Riani Suhandi as shown on the Consent certificate which had been signed by this newly appointed director on 11/06/15. On that same “Particulars” form Clancy stated that Suhandi had been appointed by him as director on 1/05/15. This date was consistent with the appointment date on the Certificate of Consent Rihandhi signed on 11/06/15. There is no other document relating to Suhandi filed prior to 12 June 2015. [Read more…]

Companies Office Records show that there has never been a company by this name “Global Group Holding NZ Ltd” registered in New Zealand.
However there is one company called Global Group Holdings NZ Ltd (Co. No. 2314973) that was incorporated on 8 September 2009. Its founding sole director was John Edward Clancy who remains its sole director.
His residential address is recorded on the company’s 2015 Annual Return filed by his accountant Richard Somerville (Walker Townsend Ltd) as 91 Kingsley Street, Sydenham, Christchurch, 8023, New Zealand. This is a false residential address as the property is in a commercial-business zone (classed non-residential).
Companies Office records show that Global Group Holdings NZ Ltd (Co. No. 2314973) has been owned by a Trust – set up by Richard Townsend Somerville’s trustee service company Clancy Trustee Company Ltd (formerly called Somerville Gp Trustee Co. Ltd, since 30 November 2011.
The Trust has two trustees: John Edward Clancy and his wife Youngmee Clancy – both recorded as currently residing at 91 Kingsley Street, Sydenham 8023, New Zealand (which as noted is a false residential address).
Contrary to his claim, John Edward Clancy does not personally own Global Group Holding NZ Ltd (which does not exist as noted), nor Global Group Holdings NZ Ltd. The latter entity is owned jointly by a Trust of which John Edward Clancy is one of two trustees, both holding shares on behalf of beneficiaries (unnamed on the register). Clancy Trustee Company is the other joint owner (with the Trust) and its director – Richard Somerville – holds one share. This company’s registered office and address for service is Level 5, 64 Khyber Pass Rd, Grafton, Auckland, 1023 , New Zealand.
John Edward Clancy owned Global Group Holdings NZ Ltd from 8 September 2009 when the company was incorporated until 30 November 2011, at which time ownership was transferred to the Trust as noted above.
John Edward Clancy claims he is currently an owner and director of Global Homes Ltd. He incorporated this company (No. 2280020) on 8 July 2009 and remains its sole director. He changed its name to LF Holdings Ltd on 28 May 2014. He currently owns (individually) only 5% of the company shares. The remaining 95% he holds jointly as a trustee of the “Clancy Trust” which was set up by his accountant Richard Townsend Somerville. Clancy Trustee Company Ltd, owned and directed by Richard Somerville, is a trustee of the “Clancy Trust”, along with John Clancy and his wife Youngmee Clancy.
