Computer Nerds Australia has been placed into voluntary liquidation.
Murray Godfrey from RMG Partners was appointed as the liquidator on September 27.
The first creditor’s meeting was held on October 8 and a final creditor’s meeting is yet to be determined.
Computer Nerds is based in Armidale NSW, and according to its website, it supplied a range of home and business repair and onsite services.
According to the liquidator’s documents it owed about $260,000 to its creditors. The majority of the debt was owed to the Australian Taxation Office at $183,000. Other creditors on the list include Leader Computers, which is owed $42,840; Inland Technology - $17,848, Impact Systems - $6733; Media Super - $5244; Sullivan Dewing $5214 and REST Superannuation $855.
Impact Systems managing director, Peter Agamalis, said he was in the process of pursuing a statement of claim against Computer Nerds and its former director, Brad Evans, to recover the debt.
He claimed Impact tried to work with Computer Nerds through supplying product to help pay down their debt.
“No one wants to see a company go down, and we allowed them to stretch their credit terms from 30 days to 50 and 60 days, without trying to put a lot of pressure on them,” Agamalis said. “It came to a point where enough was enough and we had to put the brakes on them. We previously had Evans sign an agreement to pay out his account and lately, he’s stopped paying, so we’ve issued a statement of claim against him and his company to try and recover costs.”
ARN had tried to contact Evans, but had not received a response at the time of publication.
