Beaumont Vintners Ltd: proposal to strike off

Anyone contacted by wine investment company, Beaumont Vintners Ltd, should be aware that the company faces a proposed strike off for non-compliance as the annual return should have been filed on 16th July 2011. The strike off and dissolution of the company is in abeyance following an objection by a third party. 

Following a message from one of their customers, who had had difficulties contecting Beaumont, I phoned Beaumont and spoke to an unnamed 'senior broker', who became rude and agressive when I asked him about the proposed strike and asked to speak to Samuel Philips, the director. 

Beaumont Vintners Ltd store wines in  abonded warehouse at EWGA Ltd in Carnforth, Lancashire. EWGA have no connection with Beaumont Vintners Ltd, apart from offering storage facilities. Anyone with concerns about their wines should contact Simon Thompson at EWGA on 01524-737101. 

I would certainly not buy wine from Beaumont Vintners Ltd.

Response to my email message from Samuel Philips 
(This response was sent on Saturday 10th December 2011. Unfortunately due to the volume of emails I receive I didn't find it until 13th December. My apologies.

The annual return has now been filed with Companies House.)  

Dear Mr Budd

Further to your e-mail below,  I have taken your notes on board.  The problem has now been rectified and will be altered with companies house within 48 hours. The annual return has now been submitted.  All of our clients are welcome to contact EWGA at any time to verify the safe haven of their wine.
