SUMMARY

This company is 24.5 years old and is currently active. It is controlled by multiple entities. No P&L financials are available but there is Balance Sheet data. The company has negative equity (net assets) of GBP -26.6 thousand but has improved from GBP -51.1 thousand in the previous year. Although the P&L is not published, we can infer from the Balance Sheet that Net Profit (less dividends) was GBP 24.5 thousand in the last reported period. Retained earnings is negative (GBP -66.7 thousand), which means the company has aggregate losses since it's inception or it has paid more dividends than it can afford; given the company's age, this is a sign of serious financial problems. The company has 2 active officers (directors or partners) who are or were officers of 9 other companies, 2 (22.2%) of which have since been dissolved or are proposed for strike off. The company has no public disputes filed on the Business Disputes Register. There are no court cases involving the company that we are aware of.
