As previously reported Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have been issued with a winding up petition by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. The club confirmed in a statement:
“The club owes National Insurance and VAT from recent months and these figures have been included in a petition which will be heard at the High Court on 2nd February.
We have been in dialogue with HMRC for a number of weeks and are disappointed that this petition has been served as we were hopeful of reaching a payment plan with them.”
No further statement will be issued on this matter.
