Bust Highways Hotel firm owed £200K in tax

A company which operated the Highways Hotel in Larne owed the tax man more than £200,000 when it went bust.

The hotel which closed its doors at the end of July was being operated by Banbridge-based firm Sonah (NI).

Documents filed at Companies House by one of the firm's directors showed it owed creditors more than £1m.

The main secured creditor was drinks firm Diageo, which held a £311,000 mortgage over the hotel's lease and drinks licence.

Sonah (NI) also owed a total of £315,000 to two Banbridge-based companies with which it shared directors.
