Today the Registrar of Companies Mr Neville Harris has announced his intention to remove two companies formerly directed by banned director Steve Crow, from the Register under section 318(1)(b) of the Companies Act 1993 (see Company removal notices www.companies.govt.nz). They were both involved in the hardcore pornography industry and are owned by CVC Group Ltd which is directed by a San Antonio Texas based certified public accountant (CPA), Mr John Malcolm Carr.

American Director misses Court date – by Michael Field – Stuff News. 12/08/2010
An American company director facing eight charges under the Financial Reporting Act failed to appear in the Auckland District Court yesterday [11 August]
The charges were laid by the Ministry of Economic Development (MED) enforcement unit against John Malcolm Carr [see photo links below], whose date of birth is listed as unknown. His address was given as a Remuera, Auckland, apartment but MED says it has not been able to contact him there or at any stage in its inquiry into his activities. Unusually, Carr could not be located to serve summons on and they were received by his Cromwell lawyer, Alan [Bevan] McKay [partner in Checketts McKay Law].

Carr’s company listings were first challenged by the Wellington based Society for the Promotion of Community Standards who questioned the commercial relationship between Carr and pornographer Stephen Crow who runs the “boobs on bikes” parades. The two have shared directorships on companies. The society questioned whether MED was adequately monitoring the internet based company registration system.
The charges against Carr were laid in the District Court yesterday but Carr and Mr McKay were not present before the registrar. During a brief hearing Mr McKay contacted the court by email to advice that they would not be present and was granted an adjournment to appear before a judge on August 31.
He was charged with failing to submit financial reports for two years running over Velocity Partners, PJ Digital, First Virtual Deposit and Nominee and Shelf Company No 10.

If convicted on a charge Carr can be fined up to $100,000. Carr says on a website johnmcarr.com that he was born in the US but grew up in New Zealand. He claims that in 1995 as a director of New Zealand Petroleum he changed its direction to enter health care facilities for the elderly.
Shelf Company No 10 claims to have purchased 80 hectares of “iconic coast line” property in Pakiri, north of Auckland.
A lot of interest has been generated following the publication of the Society’s summary diagram on the US corporation Carr Consulting P.A. in our December Newsletter (see below). We’ve been asked for details on the two North Shore, Auckland properties owned by Kinetiq Ltd, directed by John Malcolm Carr and owned by Velocity Partners Ltd. The latter is owned by Carr Consulting P.A. We are very happy to oblige and provide this publicly listed information. The two properties are:
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.
