Julie Meyer - her new flagship - its also insolvent surely - new Companies House Filing

By Tom Winnifrith | Thursday 9 August 2018


With former flagship Ariadne Capital Limited in administration and Julie "Lingerie on expenses" Meyer facing serious questions about that, Vince Cable's fave entrepreneur has to find a new flagship to stand behind her joke annual conference, this year to be held, to the dismay of local regulators, in Croatia. It would have been Ariadne Capital Group Limited of Malta but what with it facing regulatory probes, having no cash and with the criminal charges against Meyer in Malta that is perhaps not suitable. So Meyer has suggested her new flagship is Viva Capital LLP, formerly the company that booked her speaking fees. Problemo!

As you can see below, it was facing strike off for not filing accounts so belatedly it has just filed its accounts for the year to 31 March 2016. Can it afford the Companies House fee for late filing? Of course it has other problems too as we flagged up HERE - technically it is not an LLP any more not that Meyer has addressed that breach of company law.  Julie, as we know, thinks that obeying the law is for "little people."

But the real problems are the numbers. It lost money in the year, net current liabilities are £84.987 so being an LLP it only stands as solvent because the members (i.e. Meyer)  have pledged financial support - a "debt due" from Meyer. But given that she owes cash to the HMRC, IRS, three banks and has numerous other unpaid bills all over London and elsewhere is she actuallhy good for that cash? Whaddya think?
