The article reports that a Norwich, England-based furniture retailer is to sue the Inland Revenue for damages after it wrongly tried to have the company wound-up, despite paying its tax bill on time. Trevor Milton director of Hellesdon Leather & Cloth Furniture Co. said the publication of the winding-up hearing in the London Gazette has damaged the firm's relationship with suppliers and its reputation with consumers. Due to the winding-up order, NatWest Bank PLC from January 20, 2005 froze the company's bank account until February 4, 2005, preventing Milton making any payments to suppliers or deposit monies from customers.
