Ingram late filing accounts

No big deal, says distie, we're working on 'em now

Ingram Micro UK is facing a fine for the overdue filing of its accounts. The distributor's financials for the year ended 31 December 1998 were due at Companies House by the end of last month. But according to Companies House, Ingram has neither submitted the figures nor applied for an extension. But the distribution giant only faces a fine of £100, increasing to £250 after three months, so it will not have to dig too deep to cover the costs. Ingram pleaded innocence, saying there were definitely no skeletons in its financial closet. A company representative at first claimed to be unaware of any delay. "We have been working with our external auditors, and we now just need to schedule a final meeting with them in the near future," the representative said. "We anticipate that the results will be posted around New Year time - if not before." ® Related stories: Ingram sees turnover and profit up for '98 UK management blamed for Ingram woes
