Harrogate’s Airline Taxis to be wound-up with £55,000 debts

Airline Taxis owes former employee Tracey Lee over £25,000.

A liquidator has been appointed to wind-up Harrogate firm Airline Taxis, which has debts totalling £55,000.

Simon Weir, of DSI Business Recovery in Ossett, West Yorkshire, was appointed liquidator on Friday following a meeting of creditors.

Creditors include Tracey Lee, a former telephone operator at the company who won an employment tribunal against the taxi firm in January last year. A judge ordered the company to pay her £25,501.

She is yet to receive a penny and previously described to the Stray Ferret the “horrible” process of trying to get the sum awarded through the courts.

The company’s statement of affairs shows it also owes HSBC bank £20,000 for a bounce-back loan taken out last year.

A directors report to creditors, signed by Airline’s sole director Mohammad Suleman, said the company experienced a “significant decline” in turnover due to lack of travel during the first covid lockdown.

The report added “there is no prospect of a dividend to any class of creditor”.

It also said Airline employed three staff and the rest were self-employed drivers.

The Stray Ferret contacted Airline Taxis for comment but did not receive a reply by the time of publication.

A company called Parade Taxis Limited was created in July last year with the same registered address as Airline Taxis on East Parade. Its sole director is Areefa Naz Suleman, the daughter of Mohammad Suleman.
