Oddbins latest: HMRC is owed £8.6 million

16 March, 2011

Documents relating to the proposed company voluntary arrangement for beleaguered wine chain Oddbins show it owes HM Revenue & Customs £8.6 million in duty, VAT and PAYE.

The documents, released by Deloitte, also detail trade creditors including Hatch Mansfield (owed £310,000), Viña Carta Vieja (£278,000) and Concha y Toro (£241,000).

Oddbins is asking creditors to accept 21p in the pound in in the CVA.

If the majority agree at a meeting on March 31, Baile is convinced the business has a future.

He told OLN: “We hope people will see through the process over the next few weeks – there is a very good, solid business here.”

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
