East Entertainment icon Jesse Wallace’s company paid $ 40,000 in tax arrears.
The 49-year-old actress, who plays Cat Slater in the BBC soap opera, was voluntarily liquidated in 2015 by Thatcher Promotions Limited.
However, the business owes about $ 70,000 in unpaid corporation tax and VAT, which liquidators have been trying to recover since it closed. Mirror.
Jesse, the company’s only director, hired a law firm to make sure his home was charged and refunded.
She paid $ 60,000, paid a large amount of legal fees and paid the liquidator charged to close the business.
After these fees, $ 27,000 of the total $ 70,000 in tax arrears was paid.
The liquidators’ report shows that Jesse agreed to repay the loan at a rate of $ 1,000 per month but failed to repay regularly.
It read: “Although the installments were agreed to be repaid, unfortunately they were not regular and still needed follow-up.
“So I asked the solicitors to secure the debt and recover the money from her property.”
The liquidator’s report also states that HMRC may further examine the costs of Thatcher Promotions Limited.
It states: “An unsecured debtor may, with the permission of the court, request further information regarding the remuneration and expenses of the office owners.
“An unsecured debtor may ask the court to question the office owner’s fees and specific costs.”
The company said it would handle Jesse’s East Enters’ salary.
Jesse’s agent was contacted for comment.
