Director bans are not the only tool to cause disruption to such activities. A Liquidator has certain powers to bring claims against any involved party for misusing/receiving company monies that were not paid in the general course of business which in some cases help see recompense to victims.
Martin Gitner, Deputy Head Investigator at the Insolvency Service has commented on this recent ban. "Consumers and the wider business community need protection from people who operate companies in such unscrupulous ways. This disqualification should serve as a warning that if directors behave in this way their conduct will be investigated and they will be removed from the business environment."
