Two directors of failed mobile ‘phone cash-back’ company Phones 2 U Direct.Co.UK Limited have undertaken not to be directors following an investigation by Company Investigations, part of the Insolvency Service.

David James Ellis and his wife Angela Ellis of Kent also undertook not to be involved in the management of companies. Mr Ellis was banned for five years while Mrs Ellis received a two-year ban..

The company was formerly based at Kemsing in Kent and, shortly after the commencement of investigations, was placed into creditors voluntary liquidation on 21 February 2008 with a reported estimated deficiency of £339,304

Commenting on the disqualification, Company Investigations Supervisor Chris Mayhew said:

“The Insolvency Service has strong enforcement powers and we will not hesitate to use them to remove dishonest or reckless directors from the business environment as these directors found out.”

Marion Ward, Advice & Education Manager for Kent County Council’s Trading Standards Service added:

“The liquidation of Phones 2 U Direct.Co.UK Limited caused significant financial detriment to residents of Kent and indeed across the UK so we therefore welcome the undertakings from Mr & Mrs Ellis that they will not be involved in the management of companies in the foreseeable future”.
