According to Hardy's lawyers the club offered to pay the outstanding debt to HMRC over a four week period.
They said that the debt was "only three weeks old" and that HMRC were taking an "aggressive" attitude.
As I understand it, a winding up order is issued 21 days after a High Court judgement is issued for an outstanding debt that remains unpaid. So it would seem that the debt was over 3 weeks old but proceedings to recover it were commenced three weeks ago.
I have, in fact, just contacted HMRC and requested that my monthly PAYE deductions be halted for a while as I'm a bit skint after an expensive Christmas. I've told them I'll pay them back a bit here and there if and when I can afford to. The gentleman I spoke to said it was no problem as HMRC were now a national charity and that my debt would be placed in the PAYP - Pay As You Please - category.
