In today's Echo read how businesses run by Ron Martin could be prosecuted for not filing accounts on time. @Essex_Echo

Most of them have the same year end as SUFC Ltd (31st July) and accounts are due 9 months after that (30th April). Last year they were all signed off around 31st August (only 4 months late), so shows how bad it is this year.

I believe Martin Dawn PLC had a strike off petition on them earlier in the year, but someone stopped that.

Not sure what will happen to his companies, must have racked up a fair amount in fines though!

Unless I have misunderstood, I thought that Ron's companies were the money sources for keeping the club running, presumably along with anything that Sainsburys put in. If that is correct, does it put more pressure on club finances?

Ron's companies do very little trading. Although it is impossible to get the whole picture of what is going on due to a few of Ron's companies being registered overseas.

You are right. Ron's companies and Sainsbury's are the money source. Sainsbury's put in 100% and Ron's companies the rest !!

As martin Dawn is a PLC the fines are a lot higher than with a limited company. 3 to 6 months late is £3000.00 but this can be doubled if the previous years accounts were filed late.

I am comforted by the thought that Ron Martin will not always be in charge of SUFC. One day he will be gone and then the club can move forwards. I hope it will be in my lifetime.

£3000 when are are racking up millions in debts harldly seems worth worrying about.

Yes Ron will be gone at somepoint, whether its in your lifetime depends on how old you are :smile: Cant see him being here in 10 years.

dont wish to appear foolish , but isnt SUFC one of his companies!

Yes, via a few other companies which lead to the ultimate controlling company of Martin Dawn PLC. We are also one of those that have late accounts.
