Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division club Bideford AFC has been issued with a winding-up petition by HM Revenue & Custome over unpaid tax.
The petition was presented to the club last month and is due to be heard in London on Monday, May 18th, at 10.30am.
Bideford dispute the PAYE figure which was demanded after an inspection and a chartered accountant is working on the issue on the club’s behalf. Officials are believed to be confident the club still has a future.
It is understood the unpaid figure is not a significant amount but this development is another blow to the club which was struck with a £25,000 bill for essential work on their floodlights earlier this season.
